READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by carmenskitchen

This is one of many Cooking Light recipes that I've found to be easy, healthy and very tasty. You can easily substitute halibut or tilapia for the snapper. I served it with Simple Thai Coconut Rice and it was delicious!

Made this last night for dinner with Recipe#103775#103775 (using Recipe#16399#16399) and left over Recipe#383990#383990. It was delicious and so simple!!!! I seasoned panko crumbs for my DH's fish and dipped the fish in egg then crumbs (he likes the crunch) and cooked mine as the instructions stated. Then topped both with the butter. They both turned out wonderful. Will be making this again. Thank you.
