  • Preheat oven 425°. Grate zest from lemons to equal 4 tsp. Cut lemons in half; squeeze juice from lemons into a measuring cup to equal 2 Tbsp. Combine panko, paprika, and 2 tsp. lemon zest in a shallow dish. Sprinkle fish with 1 tsp. salt. Dip fish in 1/4 cup melted butter; dredge in panko mixture, pressing panko to adhere. Place fish on a lightly greased rack in an aluminum foil-lined broiler pan. Drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp. melted butter over fish. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.
