  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. In a medium bowl combine the panko, garlic powder, turmeric and parmesan cheese. Set aside. 
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. 
  4. Dip fish into oil mixture, shake off excess, then dip into panko mixture, pressing to adhere. Place breaded fish in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, leaving space in between each fillet. 
  5. Bake fish for 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven and flip over fillets. Return baking sheet to the oven, and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes until fish is cooked thoroughly and lightly golden.
