A Recipe for Toddlers
Posted by Christen Babb
A great alternative to the store-bought version, these fresh fish sticks will quickly become a family favorite!
½ lb. fresh tilapia fillets
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp. water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
Slice tilapia fillets into strips, about 3 inches long and ½ inch wide and set aside.
To make egg wash, combine beaten egg and water in medium bowl, and whisk with fork until well combined. Pour panko into separate container, preferably one with a flat bottom.
Dunk fish pieces in egg wash and then dredge in panko mixture. Place breaded fish on baking sheet and bake in oven for about 10-12 minutes, until panko is lightly browned and fish is an opaque white on the inside.
These Fish Stix are best served fresh, but once cooked, you can freeze them in a tightly sealed freezer bag for up to one month. Reheat in oven (do not microwave) at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
