  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F. 
  2. Rinse the fish fillets and pat them dry with paper towels. 
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, and minced garlic for the marinade.
  4. Lay the fish fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the fillets with the marinade, then season both sides with salt and pepper. If you’re using additional herbs or spices, sprinkle them on.
  5. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. 
  6. Once done, remove from the oven. If you used fresh herbs, sprinkle them over the fish to add a burst of color.
