Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter on low heat; cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the cayenne pepper, black pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt. Set aside.

Dip the filets into the melted butter, then coat with the seasoning mixture.

In a large skillet over high heat, sear fish on each side for 2 minutes or until slightly charred.
