Daily Dinner Ideas #5

If you like fish and chips, then you are going to love this Italian-inspired dish......

Crispy Crusted Red Snapper
Chef's note: Don't worry if you can't find Red Snapper. Flounder, Tilapia and other flat fish fillets work fine.

1 cup tomato, seeded and chopped
1 cup leeks, thinly sliced
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1 T. garlic, minced
4 red snapper fillets ( 6 oz. each), boned and skinned
1/2 course bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup plain potato chips, crushed
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 t. cayenne
2 T unsalted butter, melted
1 T scallion, thinly sliced
Lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine first four ingredients in a bowl. Spread on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Arrange fillets on top of vegetables; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine crumbs and next four ingredients; toss with melted butter. Divide crumb mixture evenly over watch fillet, pressing into the fish.

Bake 20 minutes or until fillets flake easily with a fork.

Sprinkle with scallions ans serve with lemon wedges.

Serve with a side of lemon snap peas or your favorite rice.
