This recipe is awesome. I used lake perch which I skinned. I used toasted wheat germ and whole wheat panko. Cooked according to directions except I noticed the bottom side was a little damp so I flipped them over and baked them another 3 minutes so they d get a little crispier. Served this with a little avocado lime mayo dill pickles and hot sauce. Side salad was spinach egg and beets with a very light honey mustard yogurt dressing.
Love them! These were fabulous! We can't wait to make them again. They turned out crispy and super flavorful however I did add some of my own chesapeake bay seafood seasoning and a bit more salt. I ran out of the breadcrumb flake mix so I'd make more of that next time around. But they really were amazing. We had them as a leftover the next night by making fish tacos with them. Still delicious. I'll be making these again for sure! Cons: I ran out of the breadcrumb mix before they were all dipped.
Quick and easy and my toddler loved them! My toddler and even tough critic husband loved them. I didn't have corn flakes and used corn chex instead and they turned out great. Used my magic bullet to blend the coating till fine. Pros: Easy and basic ingredients
I was skeptical but So good and SO crispy This recipe was absolutely on point! But i did change some things.. First I added a t sugar and a little bit more garlic salt lemon pepper and paprika second I used plain panko bread crumbs! I also cooked them for about 8 minutes longer than the recipe said ( that is using the listed servings) because i like my fish sticks a little bit firmer! I also gave them a toss half way through! I served with peas and ketchup( because my mom used to serve me ketchup with fish sticks!). I LOVED IT! and I am a very tough critic when it comes to fish and the fishiness of fish! YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS! Pros: very crispy i served with peas Cons: cooked longer than recipe said to!
My 3.5 yr old LOVED these!!!! Wonderful recipe! I did make some changes after reading the reviews. We used the Toasted Wheat Germ instead of cereal flakes. I used Whole Wheat Flour and the Ian's Panko Bread Crumbs. Loved the flavor. My 3 yr old helped make them and he asked for seconds (which never happens). I didn't have garlic powder and used Adobo seasoning instead. I will definitely bank this and use it again and again! Pros: picky-eater friendly easy to make
Delicious and crispy fish sticks. II was afraid that my six year old would not like them because I don't feed him fish very much but he was the one who enjoyed them the most. I would recommend this recipe to any mom who buys fish sticks from the grocery store.
These were kind of a lot of work more than I expected anyway. Having to dip each tilapia strip in flour - then egg - then the crumb/spice mixture got messy I found I would have to wash my hand before starting again every time. Then at the end you are supposed to coat the bottom and top of the fish sticks with cooking spray. I am not sure how one person would spray the bottom of the rack by themselves... I had my husband hold it up in the air while I sprayed underneath. But it got a thumbs up from my husband and they ARE delicious. I whipped up a quick tartar sauce with a miracle whip/dill pickle relish/ground pepper combo. Will definitely make these again.
i tried the recipe and it is easy enough and tasty. i think the author of the previous comment must not cook very often since they found it such a big pain. who has ever heard of washing their hands between breading each piece of fish? obviously you would do all of them and let it get a bit messy and just clean up at the end.
these were great! i used cod fillets panko bread crumbs and italian spice mix. dipping in 3 bowls was not a problem (use a fork if concerned about keeping fingers clean!) and just spray the tops. my family loved these-i will make these often!
I made these and everyone loved them! My 21 month old daughter called them "cookies" bit into them and said "Yumm!" None of us really like fish too much but these were not fishy tasting at all! I did make a few changes. 1) Used Salmon -its what we had on hand. 2) Used Total Cereal for the flakes -added boost of nutrition. 3) Used Garlic Salt instead of garlic powder or regular salt.
Loved these! Not too tricky to make but not something you make on a night when you are in a big hurry but they weren't hard. I tried the suggestion from an earlier comment about using total cereal flakes for the cereal flakes. I loved them and more importantly my 17 month old daughter liked them too! Will totally make again. Very crispy & tasty!
These were really good! We used cod because that's what we had in the house at the time but I bet they would be even better with tilapia. I was surprised at how crispy they were though I might put a little more of the spices in next time for more flavor.
I know this is suppose to be a comment section... but I have a question:) Could these be frozen prepared but uncooked? If so how would the cooking instructions change if I were to cook them out of the freezer. This is a perfect thing to make ahead and have on hand for those crazy busy nights.
Homemade Fish Sticks!! I made these fish stick tonight for dinner and they were very good. The crust was crunchy however it was rather bland. I only make a couple of changes I made my own breadcrumbs and I used toasted wheat germ instead of flake cereal cause that's what I had on hand. I will definitely make again and even my 3 yr old that they were good. Thanks for a help another way to get my son to eat fish.:) Pros: Healthy Simple Flexible Cons: Prep time
