Crispy Fish Sticks Recipe: This Baked Fish Fingers Recipe Is Ready in 20 Minutes

Seems like everyone is looking for new ways to cook fish this time of year (lent). You really can't go wrong with fish sticks. They are a classic that most of us grew up eating. But skip the frozen aisle and make these homemade baked fish sticks instead. They are so easy to make!

Cod fillets are cut into fish sticks. Cod is a good choice because it is a thicker, meatier fish, but you could use whatever fish you like. A dredging station is created by putting breadcrumbs, paprika and lemon-pepper seasoning in one bowl, a beaten egg in another bowl and flour in the last bowl. The fish sticks are dusted in the flour, then dipped into the egg then into the breadcrumbs before being baked in the oven until cooked through and crispy.

You could use another seasoning in place of the lemon-pepper seasoning. Cajun seasoning or seasoned salt would be good options, but go with whatever you like. Serve these homemade fish sticks with tartar sauce and your favorite side dishes for dinner or lunch.
