Crumb-Coated Red Snapper Recipe

I reel in compliments with these moist, crispy-coated fillets whenever I serve them. Heart-healthy omega-3 oils are an added bonus with my simple but delicious entree that’s done in mere minutes! I pair this fish with instant rice and microwaved frozen beans or broccoli to keep things quick! —Charlotte Elliott, Neenah, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2013

I prepared this as written for my mother's birthday. Red snapper is one of her favorites! It was a big hit with everyone from ages 11 to 76. We live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and will definitely make this again!

MY REVIEW

Fast, easy and delicious! My kind of receipe. I didn't have lemon-pepper so I used italian seasoning. May not have used enough so not alot of italian flavor but the light crispy coating and the flavor of the fish was wonderful. Will use lemon-pepper next time.

I wish I had baked my fish like redhummert did. My inexperience with fish is probably showing, but I slightly burned the coating and when I turned it over on the skin side, the fish curled up and I had an ugly looking piece of delicious fish. :)

Delish! The only change I would make is to flip the fish after 2-3 minutes on each side, rather than 4-5 or reduce the heat a bit.

This recipe was just delicious and has been moved into high rotation at our house. I used italian seasoning rather than lemon pepper and baked at 450 for 15 minutes for a crispier fillet. I have 5 kids and they all loved it!
