Baked Red Snapper with Garlic (Firinda Sarimsakli Levrek)
3 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 tsp parsley, chopped
1/8 tsp black pepper
3-4 Tbsp bread crumbs
2 Tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
½ tsp salt to taste
Remove the skin of the fillets. Rub them with salt and pepper. Arrange the fillets over a greased Pyrex/oven tray. Meanwhile, melt the butter and then take it to a small bowl. Mix parsley, garlic and parmesan. Apply this sauce generously all over the fillets with a brush.
Finally, cover the fillets with the bread crumbs. Preheat the oven to 400F (200C) and bake the red snapper until it’s flaky and soft (for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness).
Serve with lemon wedges and onion if desired.
