Prep the fish - Wash, clean, and pat dry the fish. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
Prepare marinade - Blend the marinade ingredients - cilantro, garlic, ginger, onions, salt, pepper, and oil into a food processor, blender, or mortar and pestle.
Pan - Line a baking tray 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.
Marinate the fish - Place the fish on the baking tray and spread the marinade over the fish fillets evenly. Top each with a slice of lemon.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.Pro tip - Use a large flat spatula to pick and transfer the fish without breaking.
