  • Stir together flour and cayenne into a shallow dish. Whisk egg and water into a small bowl. Stir together cornmeal, pecans, and salt into another shallow dish.

  • Dip each piece of the fish into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Then dip the fish into the egg mixture, and finally, dip into the pecan mixture to coat. Place in the prepared pan.

  • Combine bell peppers, zucchini, and squash in a large bowl. Add oil and seasoned salt; toss to coat. Arrange vegetables next to the fish, overlapping to fit, as needed.

  • Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the vegetables are crisp-tender. If desired, serve with lemon wedges.
