Wipe fillets with a damp cloth. Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow greased baking pan or on a greased broiler rack. Mix bread crumbs with 2 tablespoons of the butter and the dried thyme. Sprinkle over fish and drizzle with remaining butter. Bake at 400Â° and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fish is flaky and topping is browned. This may take even less time for smaller, thin fish fillets, such as tilapia. Broil for a minute or two to brown the top, if desired. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley. Other white fish, such as orange roughy, tilapia, or cod, may be used in this easy fish recipe.
Serves 4 to 6.
