Panko Crusted Snapper for Father’s Day #SundaySupper

The other day my husband texted me to say his boss had just given him a few snapper fillets that he had caught the day before. I love it when people go fishing and bring me some loot. I started searching the web for a new and different recipe. I make a lot of blackened fish or spicy fish tacos so I wanted a change.

Panko Crusted Snapper - Supper for a Steal

I found a salmon recipe from Ina Garten that sounded promising. I’m not a salmon fan, but this snapper was on the thick side so I had plenty of meat to work with.

What does this recipe have to do with Father’s Day? Not a whole lot. My dad does enjoy eating fish and he loves a good fried grouper sandwich. And this is kind of like a healthier version of fried fish. So, in that case I will offer up this recipe as a hearty healthy alternative for your fried fish loving father.

Happy Father’s Day Dad!
