One of the easiest and most delicious “starters” to create is a Yellowtail Snapper recipe baked with an aluminum frying pan. It’s a simple recipe, but it’s one that doesn’t require a lot of work or fancy ingredients. All you need are fish, breadcrumbs, butter and salt. If you don’t have fish, then substitute with shrimp, scallops, clams or mussels.
To make this dish, simply cut up several boneless yellowtail snapper fillets into thin slices. In a food processor or a blender, process the fish and breadcrumbs until they’re finely ground. This will give your dish a better texture and better taste. Typically, the recipe will provide an estimated reading time; use your preheat oven to come up with the actual time.
Using a non-stick frying pan, cook the breadcrumbs until they become light and translucent. When they’re done, drain them off of their plate. In a large skillet, heat some cooking oil until it’s slightly warm. Once the oil is heated, add the garlic and season to taste. If desired, you can also include the red pepper flakes in this recipe. For safety’s sake, I prefer a teaspoon of ground pepper for each four ounces of fish cooked in this skillet.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix together three cups of all purpose flour and two tablespoons of salt. Once the flour and salt are mixed, gently mix in the pre-baked fish. Don’t forget to coat the inside of the breadcrumb shell with the spice mixture to seal in the flavor. Cover the lid of the skillet and let it cook on medium heat for eight minutes. Remove the skillet and allow it to cool.
Baking your own Yellowtail snapper allows you to customize your meal based on what kind of fresh seafood you have on hand. If you’ve got a full tank of water and your fish are coming out crisp, you can bake your recipe. For those with smaller snapper fishing boats, you can still enjoy this classic seafood meal even when you’re not ready to go out fishing. As an added bonus, making your own seasoning adds more authenticity to any dish you prepare.
In case you didn’t know, having the proper preparation and cooking techniques for preparing a Yellowtail snapper recipe calls for a teaspoon of French mustard as well as a quarter teaspoon of salt, white vinegar and a quarter cup of flour. By using these items and putting them together at the same time, you will be able to create your signature dish. You can then take it from there and alter it to make it more authentic to your tastes.
Baked Yellowtail snapper can also be served as a light dinner dish served with potato salad and boiled green tomatoes. A baked sweet pepper or sweet peppers with egg whites and a little bit of black pepper also works well. This kind of recipe calls for you to use about half of a pound of shrimp per person. The recipe shows you how to prepare the shrimp, season it and bake it until it is done. The recipe gives you detailed instructions but most people find that simply dunking the shrimp in batter and placing it in the oven works well. The shrimp will cook through and you can serve it chilled.
Although the recipe for this dish does not specify any kind of herb, some people do like to add some. Garlic is one common ingredient that people like to use because of its pungent flavor. Using garlic allows you to incorporate different herbs and flavors to up the authenticity of the dish.
