I had the idea for this dish because the recipe I shared earlier this year went hyper viral. To say everyone loved the Lemon Garlic Parmesan Chicken is understatement. I’m so thankful it was VERY well received by all who tried it.

All of the ingredients are super basic and delicious. You most likely have all of them in your fridge or pantry. And the ingredients all go together so well. You can marinate the fish or just cook them straight away like I did.

Serve this fish dish with rice, or cauliflower rice. Also great to include is my 5 Minute Skillet Broccoli, with any topping added to finish.
