    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Combine corn kernels, capsicum, onion and cornflour in a bowl; set aside.
    2. Sprinkle the Creole seasoning over the snapper. Dust 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.
    3. Heat the vegetable oil in an oven-safe frypan over medium-high eat. Arrange the fillets in the frypan and fry until golden; about 5 minutes on each side.
    4. Place the frypan in the preheated oven and continue cooking until the fish flakes easily with a fork; about 5 more minutes.

    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 USA and 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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
