  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cut several pieces of aluminum foil or parchment paper into 9 x 12-inch rectangles.
  • Lay each piece down flat and lightly coat one side with cooking spray.
  • Lightly sprinkle one teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning over the coated side of the foil. Spray the foil or parchment paper again with the cooking spray to hold the seasoning in place.
  • Gently place a fish fillet on one side of the foil. Carefully fold the other half of the foil over the fish. Pat the foil to get all the lemon pepper seasoning onto the fish. The fold up the edges of the foil.
  • Working in batches, place the foil packets into the heated skillet. The bottom of the foil packets need to touch the bottom of the skillet, so be sure not to overcrowd the skillet.
  • Cook the fish fillets for seven minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. You do not have the flip the fish.
  • Remove the fish from the foil and serve.
