¼ cup fresh basil
¼ cup red onion
4 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Step 1
Combine bread crumbs and parmesan.
Step 2
Combine bruschetta ingredients, tomatoes, red onion, garlic & basil in sauté pan. Lightly sauté, just to blister tomatoes.

Place fish on a greased baking sheet or parchment paper. Put bruschetta ingredients on top of fish fillets, then place parmesan mixed bread crumbs on top. Bake at 400 degrees, 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and fish flakes easily. Then broil for a few minutes to brown the bread crumbs, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn.
