I use flounder in this recipe, but any fish fillets can be prepared with this tasty coating. It's quick and easy when time is short. -Michelle Smith of Sykesville, Maryland


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 4 flounder fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, paprika and pepper. In another shallow bowl, beat egg whites and milk. Coat fish with cornmeal mixture, then dip into egg white mixture. Coat fish again in cornmeal mixture.
  2. In a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray, arrange fish in a single layer. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
