Panko and Parmesan Breaded Red Snapper with Peach Mango and Quinoa Salad

So lately i’ve been trying to eat healthier lately. I want to lose those some of those pesky pounds that creeped up on me the past couple of months.

Just 5 pounds. That’s reasonable right?

So I thought,

i’ll eat some fish, fish is good for you!”

Psh, pan fried fish! Totally healthy for you!

I made a quinoa salad to go with it though. That’s definitely healthy for you. Plus with some fresh peaches and mangoes it’s a perfect little meal!

So in case you’ve been out fishing this summer here’s a delicious easy recipe to whip up all that fresh catch. Trust me, don’t let those fish go to waste!

Panko and Parmesan Bread Red Snapper

(Recipe by Sarah Eats Austin)
3 large red snapper filets
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded parmesan
2 tsp garlic salt
2 eggs
vegetable oil or canola oil
In a shallow dish combine the bread crumbs, parmesan and salt and stir to combine. In another seperate shallow dish lightly beat the 2 eggs.
Pat dry the fish filets using a paper towel.
Heat enough oil in a medium pan to coat the bottom over medium high heat.
When oil is ready, gently place the filets one at a time in the egg wash to cover, then immediately transfer into the bread crumb mixture to liberally coat.
Place in the pan and cook until the meat is white. About 3-5 minutes on each side depending on how thick the filets are.
Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
**Notes: When frying anything, always pat dry and use some sort of wash such as eggs to dip the item in, that way the coating sticks to it.
