Yeah, you read that right. Good ol' fish sticks. My friend gave me a great recipe and we made some a couple weekends ago. SO good...(and I grew up dousing my fish sticks in ketchup just to get them down.) These are great and the kids LOVE them! Serve with a side of veggies or a fresh salad.
At Costco, you can buy a bag of frozen Mahi Mahi fish. They are individually sealed so you can use as much or as little as you need. Light tasting fish.
Mahi Mahi (or other light white fish)
2 eggs beaten
1-2 cups Panko bread crumbs (Japanese...find them in the Asian aisle)
To thaw fish, soak in cold water in a bowl until thawed.
Beat eggs in a shallow dish, set aside. In another shallow dish, add Panko. Take your fish and cut into 2 to 3 finger thick pieces (since each portion is varied size, it'll change how many "sticks" you get) Use the width of one of your fingers to gage where to cut.
Heat 1/2 cup Peanut Oil (you may need to add more during cooking) in a large skillet using moderate heat.
Dip the fish in the egg, then into the Panko. Place fish into oil and cook until nicely browned.
Here's a great dip for the fish:
Combine all together and serve with fish sticks.
