Baked Fish Sticks are a healthier take on a classic comfort food. In the middle of the twentieth century, fish sticks appeared as a practical solution to the problem of how to make seafood more approachable and less daunting to prepare. These days, people of all ages love them. By substituting the oven for the deep fryer, we can make this recipe for a comfort food classic that is both healthy and reminiscent of simpler times. Ideal for individuals who are attempting to increase their seafood consumption or for anyone who want a crispy, golden-brown dessert without feeling guilty.

If you’re a pescatarian or just want to spice up your dish with some variety, these fish sticks are perfect. For a more contemporary take, try them with quinoa salad or a side of fresh, acidic coleslaw. If you’re in the mood for something classic, a mound of mashed potatoes with a handful of vibrant peas and a ribbon of mint is the perfect accompaniment.


4 Baked Fish Sticks


One pound of firm white fish, sliced into one-inch broad strips (e.g., cod or tilapia), is required.

Panko breadcrumbs, measuring 1 cup

– Half a cup of Parmesan cheese, shredded – One teaspoon of garlic powder

paprika, measured in teaspoons

Half a teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of red pepper flakes

– Two big eggs

– One-fourth cup of regular flour

– Olive oil or cooking spray for frying


1. Get your oven ready for 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make a small grease or spray of olive oil to coat the paper.

2. Mix the panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.

3. Crack the eggs into a another basin and whisk them well until they become foamy.

4. Distribute the flour evenly onto a dish.

5. Coat each set of fish strips in a different mixture: flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. After dredging, brush off any excess flour.

6. Arrange the coated fish strips on the baking sheet that has been prepared, taking care not to let them contact.

7. Add the fish to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the top is brown and readily flaked with a fork. Flip the fish sticks over halfway through baking to ensure uniform crispiness.
