One of my guilty pleasures growing up was always fish sticks and those breaded fish patties. They’d occasionally have them at school lunches, and my dad has always been a fan of the frozen fish from our local freezer section. I haven’t purchased anything of the sort in quite a long time, and shudder to think how (and from what) they’re produced, but they sure were tasty.
This is a fun recipe that I think you’ll enjoy. It’s fairly easy, and I bet your kids (if applicable) would really enjoy helping make these fish sticks. I’ll throw out a challenge now to use your favorite cookie cutter to make dinosaur, star, or heart shaped fish sticks.
We even went ahead and attempted our own tartar sauce. A little bit of dill pickle relish with your homemade mayonnaise will go a long way. We hope you enjoy!
2 C homemade mayonnaise
3 Tbsp kosher dill relish
First off, or possibly the night before, prepare your mayonnaise with your blender. Add in dill pickle relish and allow to set in the refrigerator. The longer this rests, the more the flavors will marry.
Cut your fish into small chunks, and then blend into fine pieces using your food processor.
Transfer into a bowl, and mix with 2 large eggs.
Form into fish stick sized bites (or your favorite fun shapes) and roll in the dry mixture of salt, pepper, old bay, garlic powder, and almond flour.
Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 400ºF.
Enjoy, and be sure to let us know how they turn out!
