Red Snapper with Cajun Crust

Gulf Treasure Seafood - Red Snapper with Cajun Crust
Ingredients
  • 2 Gulf Treasure Red snapper fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium clove garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Creole or Cajun seasoning, or your own favorite seasoning blend, with salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh or frozen chives, optional
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons plain or seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoon freshly grated parmesan cheese, optional
     
Preparation
Place snapper fillets in a baking dish which has been sprayed with a butter-flavored baking spray.
In a skillet, melt butter with garlic, paprika, 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.

Serving for two.
