  • 2 fillets Perch 3 ounces each
  • Salt To taste

  • 1 Lemons Sliced
  • 1 clove Garlic Minced
  • Green Onions Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Add ocean perch fillets skin side down to the baking dish of choice. Make sure it's large enough for fish fillets to fit in.
  • Add chopped green onions on top. Then add lemon slices, about 2 or 3 on each fillet. Mince or chop garlic and add on top too. Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.


  • A great way to check if the fish is done is to check its temperature. Internal temperature should be 145°F when done.
  • Slice the lemon as thin as you can. too much lemon flavor will overpower the fish.
  • If you don't have fresh garlic, you can use garlic powder. About 1 teaspoon per fish.
