Baked Fish with Crisp Bread Crumbs (NEW)
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 Small shallot, minced
1 Small garlic clove, minced
1/4 Teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 Cup panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons Seafood 016 Pleasoning
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper 009 Pleasoning
2 6 oz. skinless cod, haddock or halibut fillets, 1 - 1 1/2 inch thick
Instructions: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 300.
Set wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet and spray with vegetable oil spray. Melt butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add panko and cook, stirring constantly, until evenly browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Seafood Pleasoning. Transfer panko mixture to shallow dish and let cool for 10 minutes.
Whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice and Lemon Pepper Pleasoning together in bowl. Pat fish dry with paper towels. Coat tops of fillets evenly with mayonnaise mixture. Working with one fillet at a time, dredge coated side in panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere, and place fish, crumb side up, on prepared wire rack. Bake until centers are just opaque and fish registers 135 degrees, 30-35 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Serves: 2
