Crumb-Coated Red Snapper
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
