This recipe is so good, my dh doesn't care for fish but asks when are we having snapper again??? I can't remember where I got this recipe but I'm sharing here so I'll know where it is. Very simple and quick to make.
- 2 red snapper fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium garlic clove, pressed
- 3 -4 drops Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon creole seasoning
- 1 dash salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives (optional)
- 3 -4 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)
- Place snapper fillets in a baking dish which has been sprayed with a butter-flavored baking spray.
- In a skillet, melt butter with garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Creole seasoning blend, pepper, parsley, and chives, if using. Cook on low for 2 minutes, just to blend flavors. Brush both sides of fish fillets with the butter and herb mixture. Toss bread crumbs in the remaining butter mixture; sprinkle over the fillets. Bake at 400° for about 12 minutes, depending on thickness of fillets, until fish flakes easily and is no longer translucent.
- Serves 2.
This was delicious. Easy to prepare, too. Lots of flavors. We don't get snapper often, so I am going to use this preparation for tilapia also. Thanks for this keeper.
