Favorite Ingredients Friday (Fish Fillets with Lemon Crumb Topping))

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Check out my upcoming themed schedule below:

Upcoming 2009 "Themed" Schedule
May 15- Spreads & Dips
May 29- Greatest Hits (your past favorite)
June 12- Weight Watcher's Edition

As many of you know, I'm trying really hard to eat healthier and exercise to get my high cholesterol levels down.  I have a follow-up appointment with my doctor in July.

Recently the American Heart Association sent me a small paperback cookbook called, Light & Easy Recipes.  I love it!  The recipe I'm sharing with you today is from this cookbook and it's yummy!

Fish Fillets with Lemon Crumb Topping

Cooking spray
2 medium lemons
4 flounder, snapper, or tilapia fillets (about 4 oz each)
2 slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
1/4 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 425*F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

2. Quarter 1 lemon and set aside. Grate enough zest from the remaining lemon to measure 1/2 tsp. Set the zest aside. Cut the lemon crosswise into 8 slices.

3. Place 2 lemon slices side by side on the baking sheet. Place a fish fillet on the lemon slices. Repeat with the remaining lemon slices and fish, spacing the portions at least 2" apart.

4. In a food processor, pulse the bread to make coarse crumbs. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the reserved lemon zest, garlic powder, cayenne, and paprika. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil. Stir gently to blend. Spoon over each fillet.

5. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the topping is browned. Transfer to four plates.

6. Drizzle the remaining 2 tsp olive oil over the fish. Serve with the reserved lemon wedges to squeeze over the fish.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
