Baked Red Snapper

Fresh fish of almost any kind is great - but sometimes people can't appreciate the goodness. I've found that people who are a little unsure about fish can be coaxed into trying it if it has some kind of breading - even just spread on top. I picked up a 5 pound red snapper and had it filleted. It fed 9 people and everyone liked it! amazing!

Baked Red Snapper
Adapted from a recipe posted on About.com by Diana Rattray
four red snapper fillets 6-8 ounces each
8 tbsp butter
2 cloves minced
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp Old Bay spice
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 green onions, chopped
6-8 tbsp plain or seasoned bread crumbs

place fillets in a buttered baking dish

Melt butter in skillet with garlic, Old Bay, cajun spices, pepper, and green onions. Saute for 1-2 min.

Add 6-8 tbsp bread crumbs.

Spread mixture on top of the red snapper, top with lemon slices. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.

Enjoy! it was great.
