Baked Breaded Fish

4 fillets white fish of your choice (pollock, cod, etc.), thawed
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
5 Tbsp butter or margarine, divided
1 tsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 450'F. Spray the bottom of a Pyrex dish (big enough to hold the fillets with a little space between) with non-stick cooking spray.

Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a small skillet. Add the bread crumbs, stirring frequently until the breadcrumbs are golden brown. Remove from heat.

In a shallow bowl/plate, melt the remaining butter. Add the lemon juice. Dip each fillet in the melted butter on both sides, then press the top down firmly in the breadcrumbs. Place in Pyrex dish. Repeat with other fillets. Gently spoon the remaining breadcrumbs onto the fillets, pressing down (with fingers).

Bake at 450'F until white and flaky, approx 5-6 minutes per 1/2" thickness.
Serves 4
