  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Creole Seasoning


  1. Begin by cutting the red snapper into small rectangular shaped pieces then add to a large bowl.

  3. Season fish with sea salt, black pepper and Creole Seasoning then mix together with hands. Coat fish with 1/4 cup of flour.
  4. In a large bowl, add eggs and heavy whipping cream and whisk (paid link) until smooth.
  5. You will need 2 large zip lock bags. In one large zip lock bag add 1 cup flour, garlic powder and cilantro flakes and in the second bag add panko breadcrumbs and Italian breadcrumbs.
  6. Coat fish in egg mixture the add fish to the flour bag. Coat evenly.

Be aware of bones in the fish as you are cutting your red snapper into fish sticks. There is line of bones that starts in the center of a fillet and goes about half way down. You’ll want to use the fish around the bone for this recipe.
