Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange fish fillets on baking sheet; bake 17 to 19 minutes total or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, flipping after 12 minutes. Remove from oven; cool.
Heat oil to 375 degrees in a deep-fat fryer or large heavy saucepan suitable for deep-frying. Follow instructions for quantity of oil in deep-fat fryer. For heavy saucepan, use at least 2 inches of oil.

Beat egg white with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight); gently fold into pea mixture. Drop batter by rounded teaspoons into hot oil. Fry in batches for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon curry powder; keep warm.
Whisk together remaining 1 cup flour, remaining 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl.
