Prep the fish - Wash, clean, and pat dry the fish. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
Pan - Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean-up. Spray or brush with oil to prevent the fish from sticking. Pro tip - Make sure the fish is dry. Otherwise, the marinade will slide down the fillets as soon as they are in the oven.
Tandoori marinade - In a mixing bowl, combine all the tandoori masala ingredients. Stir or use a whisk to ensure you have no lumps in the marinade.
Marinate the fish - Place the fish on the baking tray and spread the marinade over the fish fillets evenly. Pro tip - Alternatively, you can add the fillets to the marinade bowl and leave them to marinate for an hour on the counter or overnight in the fridge.
Bake - Bake in the preheated oven on the middle rack for 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked.
Cool - Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.Pro tip - Use a large flat spatula to pick and transfer the fish without breaking.
