Homemade Fish Sticks


Please don’t be upset.

I only took three pictures.

I was making a full dinner, and I was making the Sweet Potato and Apple Fritters, too, and I just kept forgetting to take pictures of this stuff!

Hopefully these will be good enough. Oy vey.

There aren’t a lot of ingredients: You just need some fish (we used flounder because it was on sale), bread crumbs, flour, an egg, a little salt, fresh pepper, and paprika. You can use whatever seasoning you want. 


Preheat your oven to 400F.

Cut the fish into strips or nuggets.

Now, set up THREE BOWLS:

  1. 1/2 cup of flour
  2. 1 beaten egg (I ended up needing a second egg.)
  3. 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and paprika

Dip the strips into the bowls, in order, and place them on a greased baking sheet.


I sprinkled some extra paprika and salt on some of them, as you can see.

Bake these at 400F for about 10 minutes, flipping them once.

I served mine with the sweet potato fritters I mentioned earlier!

    What ages would you recommend these for?

      Hey there! As long as there’s no allergy (to egg, gluten, or fish) then these are fine from 6 months and up!

    Would these freeze if I bulk made?

      Yes they should!
