I admit, I was one of those moms who bought the huge $7 bag of a gazillion fish sticks for my kids.
It made for a super quick dinner. Today, I decided, nope, no more bagged minced fish meat sticks for my kids....we need better!
These are so easy. You need...
Fish (I used tilapia)
Seasoning (I used Creole Seasoning, added to the cornmeal)
I found it easier to slice the fish if it was slightly frozen. It made the cuts smoother and easier. Slice the fish into strips, you can cut off the ends for straight blunt edges.
Dip the sticks into cornmeal, then water, then into breadcrumbs. I press down when coating in the breadcrumbs to make sure it sticks.
Then fry in vegetable oil until brown.
Seriously, you will love these! My kids said they do not want bagged fish sticks again!
