Parmesan-Red Pepper Fish

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MountainCook

A great cruncy coating with a kick! This recipe can be used with almost any fish fillet - I use mahi mahi, but it would be good with tilapia, sole, flounder, etc. or even bass, crappie, walleye, or bluegill.

So easy and with just the right kick of hotness. I used it on catfish and another time on chicken strips. It was delish!
