Print Recipe

This parmesan panko crusted fish and tomato basil cream sauce recipe is simple and quick. And if you want to give it a “fish and grits” twist, buy a roll of polenta in the produce department of your local grocery, cut off a few rounds, sauté them along with the fish, and plate with your fish. Firm-fleshed fish like sheepshead, redfish, grouper, tripletail and even lionfish are all excellent choices for this version of fried fish.
