    A great way of preparing any type of fish. Red snapper is seasoned with a Creole blend, then coated with sweetcorn, pan-seared then baked to perfection.

    2. Sprinkle the Creole blend 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 sweetcorn mixture into the egg whites.

    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!  -  21 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  03 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  23 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
