Directions

  1. Stir egg whites and water together with a fork in a wide, shallow bowl. Mix cornmeal, flour, and pepper together with a fork on a plate.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Dip each flounder fillet into the egg white mixture and press into the cornmeal mixture to coat completely. Gently toss between your hands so any cornmeal that hasn't stuck can fall away. Place fish onto a plate while preparing the rest of the fillets; do not stack.
  4. Carefully put fish into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain fillets on a plate lined with paper towel; season with salt.

This was really yummy and easy to make, but I feel the amount of flour and corn meal should be way less. I tried to use as much as possible but only so much will stick. I had a ton left over with six 2 oz. fillets, but the breading was just the right thickness and super crispy. My family loved it too!

I adjusted my Serving Size to reflect 2 Servings, versus the Original 4 Servings, and the Dry Ingredients were adjusted lower. After dipping my fresh Atlantic Haddock, which I cut into serving size pieces, into the Egg White I had no problem getting the Dry Ingredients to stick. We liked the Tasty Outer Coating and the way it Browned up very nicely. The trick is to use good, and fresh, Vegetable Oil and to heat this up at a high temperature (and cover the pan while cooking).
