Description

Finally! A healthier, tastier version of the ones that come out of a box.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Tilapia Fish Sticks
  • 2 whole Egg Whites, Beaten
  • 1-½ cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450F.

Lay a wire rack on a baking sheet and spray it with nonstick spray.

Cut the tilapia once down the middle, then in half, creating four “sticks.” Season with salt and pepper. In a bowl, beat the egg whites. In a separate bowl, add the panko, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Dip each fish stick in egg whites, then in the panko mixture, pressing to adhere. Lay on the wire rack and spritz with olive oil.

Bake for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for 10 more minutes. Serve hot!

This recipe makes 12 fish sticks.

These have made several appearances in my kitchen which says a lot since I’m not a big fish eater. I’ve made them with talapia and cod (I think?). I’ve served them plain with a side of oven baked fries and in fish tacos.

If you cook them on the wire rack, you don’t really need to worry about flipping them.

Excellent! So light and crispy…and healthy! Love them! Just trying not to eat them all myself!

These had great flavor and I loved the crunchiness, but if I make them again I would definitely not put them on a rack. When I turned them over, half of the bread crumbs came off and fell under the rack. I think I would rather just put them on a foil-lined pan sprayed with cooking spray.

I actually had three pieces of tilapia thawing when I ran across this recipe. Thought it looked wonderful. Added a bit of Old Bay to the listed ingredients, and got everythng ready. Absolutely a hit with both my husband and me…and it will definitely go into my ‘favourites file’. Kudos, ‘HowSweetEats’ – a five star hit, for sure…!!!

I have made these several times over the past couple of months, using both tilapia and cod. We have used them for fish tacos and eaten them plain. They are delicious every time and SO easy. Thanks for the recipe!
