Tilapia Fish Sticks
2 tilapia fillets, sliced lengthwise (you can also use halibut or any fish you prefer)
1 cup breadcrumbs, or panko
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup flour
*i also added red pepper flakes for some spice (that’s a must!)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Take the fish fillets and slice lengthwise, then cut the lengths in halves (about an inch wide). In a small shallow bowl beat the egg. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Dip the each fish strips into the egg mixture, covering completely, then the dry mixture. Place on a sprayed baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, then rotate sides and bake for another 5 minutes.
I got some Tilapia today at Sam's club that is packaged individually and there are about 10 in the box (I think) Anyway I opened one and it is seasoned with a light sauce, pepper and other spices. It was very tasty and I was able to cook it in the microwave. Next time I will try it in a pan on the stove. I think it will cook better that way. And I said all that to say it was very tasty. My husband is not a fish fan so this type of packaging is great for me.
This recipe for Fish stick is nice because they are baked. I love fish stick but don't like frying them.
