Easy Fish Fingers

I like cooking cod, it’s lean and nutritious, and is a great choice for dinner. There are several delicious cod recipes on the website like Parmesan and Paprika Baked Cod, Baked Cod with Mustard and Paprika and Gluten Free Cod Fish Nuggets that has become quite popular. These easy homemade fish sticks will be no exception, they are crispy outside, flaky and juicy inside. You will enjoy every bite! Don’t skip the quick honey-mustard sauce.

1. Slice fish fillets into strips. Pat dry with paper towels (this step is important to prevent breading from falling off). Season with salt.

2. In a bowl, use a fork to lightly beat eggs with a teaspoon of water. Place flour on a separate plate. On another plate, mix together Panko breadcrumbs, smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper.
3. Heat oil in a large skillet (enough to cover the bottom of the skillet) over medium-high heat.
4. Dredge each fish strip in flour, then dip it in the egg mixture, and finally coat with the Panko breadcrumbs mixture.

5. Cook fish pieces for about 3-5 minutes per side, until nicely golden brown.

6. While fish is cooking, prepare the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine mayo, lemon juice, garlic powder, mustard, honey, stir well.

7. Serve fish fingers with the sauce and lemon wedges on the side.
