How to Make Snapper with Sun Dried Tomato-Garlic Butter


  1. Cut sun dried tomatoes into small bits and drain on paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the tomato bits, butter, garlic and basil leaves. Stir this mixture to blend well and set aside.
  3. Dredge the snapper fillets in the seasoned flour mixture, coating well. Dip the coated fillets in the egg-wash mixture, then dredge into the seasoned crumbs.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet or fry pan over a medium heat. Add the coated fillets and fry until nicely browned, then turn and continue on other side until done.
  5. Transfer the cooked fish to individual plates and top with a dollop of the tomato-garlic butter. Add side dishes and serve immediately.
