— fish sticks! They’re fast. They’re delicious. #makeextra
🌟Full episode is on #IGTV
1 lb of tilapia
1/4 cup of flour
1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs (regular or whole wheat)
3/4 cup Corn Flake Crumbs (or any sweet cereal you like, smashed to bits)
Canola oil (or oil of your preference)
1.) Trim your tilapia into fish stick size pieces. You want them to be of similar size and thickness. There is always one side of the fillet that is thinner so I make those into “wide and flat sticks” 🤷♀️
2.) Gather three bowls to use for your batter station.
Bowl 1: 1/4 cup of flour, a few big pinches of salt, about a teaspoon of fresh ground pepper.
Bowl 2: crack one egg, add a little water, mix with a fork.
Bowl 3: combine the Panko and corn flake crumbs. Have an empty plate ready to catch your fish sticks when they are battered.
3.) Start at bowl one, coat fish piece in flour, shake excess. Dip in bowl two, shake excess. Drop in bowl three, push crumbs into fish until fully coated. Place on plate. Repeat until all fish pieces are done.
4.) About half way through battering, I like to start heating my oil. About 1/4 inch on medium/high.
5.) When the oil is ready, place 5 to 6 fish pieces in your pan (or whatever will fit, giving them some breathing room).
6.) Prepare a plate covered in paper towels to catch fish sticks when they come out of the oil.
7.) They cook through fast. Pay attention to the color. When they are a deep golden brown, flip. When both sides are sufficiently brown, remove from pan and place on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt immediately.
8.) Repeat for remaining fish sticks, add/heat more oil if necessary.
9.) Yum. #foodporn #food #fish #yum #yummyfood #yummy #eat #eating #foodie #foodphotography #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #life #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #jennifergarner #losangeles #freshingredients #sdlive #ajstyles #wwe #charlotteflair #beckylynch #carmellawwe #briebella #foodie #foods
