Fish Sticks- Best Ever

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 13 minutes | Total Time: 23 minutes | Yield: Serves: 4


  •  1/4 cup corn or canola oil
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs (can add some Panko to this)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp each garlic powder, black pepper, and paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound white fish fillets such as cod or tilapia, cut into “fish-stick-size” strips (about 3 inches by 1 inch)
  • Lemon wedges or tartar sauce (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 450 F.
  2. Spread oil on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Toss crumbs, grated cheese, and seasonings together in a shallow dish until blended.
  4. Put flour into another shallow dish and beaten eggs into a third shallow bowl.
  5. Coat each piece of fish evenly with flour.
  6. Then dip each floured piece into beaten eggs. Last of all, turn each piece around in crumb mixture until evenly coated.
  7. Place each coated piece of fish onto the oiled sheet, then turn pieces over so both sides are oiled.
  8. Bake until golden brown, about 10 to 14 minutes.
  9. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, tartar sauce, ranch dressing, or ketchup, as your family prefers.

Notes: Serve with this tartar sauce. We usually eat this with a side of steamed broccoli.
