Season the filets evenly with HALF of the garlic you chopped up, lemon pepper, course ground black pepper, parsley, and I added a half of a thin slice of lemon. *careful with how much pepper you put

Put the filets in 375 degree F oven to bake for 10-12 minutes. While you're waiting, you can fry the other half of the garlic to top off your filets.. I like to do this to add a little crunch texture

10-12 minutes and you're done! Don't forget to top it off with the fried garlic. More fresh squeezed lemon juice is optional... And don't forget your side of veggies ☺ Carrots for me today. Enjoy!
