You can make these homemade fish sticks in about the same amount of time it takes to bake a box of the frozen kind. Make it a meal: Serve with lemon wedges, coleslaw, roasted new potatoes and a dollop of tartar sauce.

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!

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.

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!

very crispy, i served with peas
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!

picky-eater friendly, easy to make

I used cheap frosted flakes, and was awesome!

easy to make, had all ingreients at my house, cooks fast! Boyfriend and friends loved it
