Baked Fillet of Basa with Rice


3 Basa Fillets (Basa is a Vietnamese catfish but with a more delicate flesh and taste)
1 package flavored rice like Rice-a-Roni. I used Knorr (prepare as per directions but use 1/4 less water)
1 tsp lemon juice
fresh thyme
salt and pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a Pyrex baking dish, spray with Pam or similar product.

When the rice is ready, put it in the baking dish. Place the fillets on top of the rice. Season with the remaining ingredients and bake for approximately 1/2 hour or until fish is flaky. Be careful not to overcook.

Serve with vegetable. I served asparagus with garlic vinaigrette.
