Healthy fish sticks

2 03 2010

Matt and I are hooked on fish sticks. We make them once a week and have it quite down to a science.  Here’s how we do it:

Buy 1/2 to 1 pound of a firm, white, flaky fish (cod or haddock are good choices).

Cut the fish into sticks.

Get three empty bowls down from your cupboard. In one: flour. In another: eggs. In the third: bread crumbs (we’ve found that panko works best).

Heat 1-2 inches of vegetable oil in a pan. While it is heating, start dipping and coating the fish.  First in the flour, then the egg, then in the bread crumbs.

We cook the fish in batches and it takes 5-10 minutes for the fish to cook through (depending on how big you cut your sticks).

To serve: salt and lemon.  That’s about all you need. Although, you could do wonders with some tartar sauce, mustard, or vinegar.  We usually eat the sticks with a nice side salad.

Look how beautiful (this was one of our first attempts):

Thanks, Erin! We’ve been trying to eat more fish, and this sounds delicious. I’m going to try it this week!

Also great for chicken strips. I really should try the fish. I don’t eat enough fish.
