I reel in compliments with this moist, crispy red snapper recipe. Heart-healthy omega-3 oils are an added bonus with my simple but delicious entree that’s done in mere minutes. It's one of the best red snapper recipes I've found. —Charlotte Elliott, Neenah, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 red snapper fillets (6 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, lemon pepper and salt; add fillets, 1 at a time, and turn to coat.
  2. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, cook fillets in oil, in batches, until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 4-5 minutes on each side.
