Crumb-Coated Red Snapper w/ Green Beans, Polenta, and Whole Grain Bread


Came across some nice looking Red Snapper fillets while at Kroger earlier in the week. So for dinner I had Crumb-Coated Red Snapper w/ Green Beans, Polenta, and Whole Grain Bread. In a shallow bowl I combined Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, Parm Cheese, Lemon-Pepper and Sea salt. I then rolled the fillets in the mix completely coating them. Then I fried the fillets on medium low heat in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Golden Brown and delicious!


For sides I had Frieda’s Organic Traditional Polenta. I sliced the polenta thinly into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Placed on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brushed the polenta with a 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Baked them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I left the info and web site link for Frieda’s Below. Along with the Polenta I had Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert I baked some Pillsbury Apple Turnovers topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
