"This was very tasty--the seasoned pepper is a great addition--but I think next time I'll use dry breadcrumbs instead of the cornflake crumbs. The cornflakes made the crust a little tough. I used 4 6-oz. fillets, and increased the baking time about 7 minutes. I'll make this again."

"Why egg whites and not the yolk?"
