I have a new obsession – Pinterest! Oh my goodness I can waste hours looking at pretty things, pinning food ideas, find interesting says, browsing fashion ideas and hunting for my next vacation destination! I love pinning things so that I can find them again later.
A week or two ago I saw a pin for MaMa’s Club Tilapia Parmesan which looked tasty despite the fact I don’t really care for tilapia. I took the basic idea, tweaked it a bit and then put it on Snapper fillets. You could really apply this topping to any mild white fish or even chicken if you preferred.
What I love about this recipe is that it is so easy. Depending on how thick you particular fish fillet is, you can pull this in about 15 minutes which is great for any night of the week.
I recommend you cook you fish on a broiler pan. This topping has a lot of fat that runs off as it heats.
I served mine on top of the Garlic Linguini with Roasted Veggies that I shared in an earlier post, but you don’t have to get that elaborate. These filets are perfect as a stand alone entree. Just add some veggies or a salad and you are done.
Parmesan Crusted Snapper
Prep: 5 minutes - Cook time: 10-20 minutes (depending on size of fish) - Makes: 4 servings
- 4 Snapper fillets (or other mild white fish fillets)
- olive oil spray
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup shredded parmesan
- 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- zest from 1 lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup panko brean crumbs
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly spray fillets with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place on a broiler pan skin side up. Bake until fish are flaky and opaque white.
While fish is baking, place parmesan, butter, mayonnaise, green onions, lemon zest, garlic salt and chopped parsley into a small bowl. Season with black pepper and mix throughly.
When fish is done remove pan from oven. Peal off skin and discard. Turn oven up to broil.
Spoon topping onto each fish fillet and spread out over the top of the fillet. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of panko crumbs over the topping on each fillet.
Broil fish with Parmesan topping for 1-2 minutes until topping melts and becomes golden. Serve and enjoy!
