This makes a good presentation served on either salad greens or mashed potatoes but is also very tasty. When red fish is not available I've used grouper and even tilapia and orange roughy

  • Sprinkle the Creole seasoning over the red snapper. Dredge the fish in the flour, then dip them in the egg whites. Coat both sides of the fish by pressing the corn mixture into the egg whites.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high eat. Arrange the fillets in the skillet and fry until golden, about 5 minutes on each side. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and continue cooking until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 more minutes.

Cook's Note

For a faster recipe, use frozen corn that has been completely defrosted and dried with paper towels.

I followed the recipe exactly and even the kiddos liked it! My husband is eager to try it with fresh pike or halibut. Next time we'll omit the Creole and just salt and pepper generously. By far...the caramalized corn flavor was what made this recipe a keeper! Read More

The flavor of the batter was very good but I would personally not recommend using Grouper. I used it and it had a stronger "fishy" taste than I anticipated. Next time I will use tilapia or try the red snapper. Read More

I improvised a little. Seasoned fish w black pepper & soul seasoning. Mixed flour with corn meal. Used corn meal in place of corn starch. It was fabulous! My family loved it! I will definitely use this recipe again! Very easy and very delicious! Read More
