Healthy Cornflake-Crusted Fish Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Cornflake-Crusted Snapper

A crunchy coating on soft and flaky fish always takes me back to my childhood and those frozen boxes of fish sticks. That's why a recipe for fresh baked cornflake-crusted snapper seemed like the perfect way to re-create the nostalgic dish with a little more adult flair.

Set up stations for the flour, egg white, and cornflakes, and your family will be sitting down for dinner in about a half hour. To keep the meal healthy, I served it with a simple side salad. However, if you're in the mood for a nutritious variation on fish and chips, why not offer it with oven-baked sweet potatoes?

Pull out the box of cereal at dinner to get started on this easy seafood dish.

Ingredients

  1. 4 (6-ounce) snapper or other firm white fish fillets
  2. 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper flakes
  3. 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt

  9. 3/4 cup crushed cornflakes
  10. Vegetable cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a large baking pan with cooking spray or line with nonstick aluminum foil. Spray a rack with cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle fish with red pepper, paprika, cumin, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Place flour in a shallow dish. Whisk egg white and 1 tablespoon water in a medium bowl. Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow dish. Dredge fish in flour, shake off excess, and dip in egg white mixture. Dredge in cornflakes, coating completely.
