Homemade Healthy Fish Sticks/Fingers ! :)


Traditional Fish Sticks


Breaded Fish Sticks

What’s in your fish sticks? Are they full of gluten and preservatives? Here’s a recipe I love that’s gluten-less, preservative free, sugar-free, milk-free and simple. It is so much healthier and cheaper too! :) Plus, the kids will love it! Freeze a bunch in advance for a healthy, quick dinner! :)


2 skinless fish fillets

1/2 c. corn meal OR 1/2 c.GF bread crumbs

sprinkling of salt, garlic, and pepper (plus any other spices you desire) over the corn meal or bread crumbs

1 egg OR 2 egg whites OR 1/4 c. oil

If frozen, defrost fish fillets. Cut into fish sticks or patties/fillets if you like. :) Set aside. Preheat oven to 400. Pour 1/2 c. corn meal on a plate with spices. Mix spices and cornmeal together and spread out evenly on a plate. Prepare eggs or oil in a bowl. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Dip the fish into the oil or eggs, and then place in the cornmeal mixture, flipping so it gets on bottom of the fish too. Place completed fish sticks on the cookie sheet. After the tray is full, cook for about 10-15 mins or until done. Breaded fish fillets take slightly longer.

Double or triple this recipe and experiment with the exact measurements. This is a rough estimate and it really depends on how big your fillets are etc. Based off my chicken nugget recipe.
