Cooking Light's Easy & Crispy Baked Fish Fillets

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by blucoat

From Cooking Light Magazine. This is a healthy and delicoius recipe that bakes a moist and tenderv fish with a crispy outside. You won't even miss the fat! Haddock, cod, or tilapia would make good substitutes for the grouper but you can try it with any fish you like or have on hand. Adjust the baking time depending on the thickness of the fish.

A great way to dress up a basic baked fish entree. I split the amount of mayo in half and substituted fresh pesto for an extra zing. The baking time was just right for a nice flaky texture. The last couple of minutes I used the broiler to crisp the breadcrumb. Substitute butter flavored cooking spray for the melted butter for ease and reduced calories. I will use this recipe again soon.
