Who doesn’t like fish sticks? I know that it’s often the adults who head straight for the fish sticks when they see them on the kids table. My husband, who is definitely guilty of stealing kids fish sticks, came up with this great twist on breaded fish. The adults and kids alike will not be able to resist these crispy and moist fish sticks, made from salmon, instead of white fish. No matter how much we make, there are never any leftover!
- 1 1/2 -2 lbs Salmon filet skinned and from the thick, center portion
- Grape-seed oil or other oil with a high burning point
- 2 Cups Breadcrumbs mixture recipe below
- 2 Eggs beaten
- 1 Cup Flour
- Prepare a sheet tray, lined with parchment paper or foil and paper towels.
- Cut the salmon into 1/4 inch slices, the short way, with the grain. Cut the salmon on the bias so that the slices are wider.
- Set up your breading station: Place the flour in a shallow pie plate, beat the eggs into a second shallow pie plate, place the breadcrumb mixture into a bowl.
- Bread each piece of salmon, first coating it in the flour, then the eggs and then the breadcrumbs.
- Once you have finished breading the fish, you can begin frying the fish.
- Heat up the oil in a large frying pan until it reaches 350 degrees. The oil should be deep enough to go about half way up the side of the salmon. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can test the oil by dropping in a breadcrumb and seeing of it sizzles – then you know the oil is ready.
- Fry each breaded salmon piece for 1 minute on each side. After one minute, the breadcrumbs should be nicely browned. If the breadcrumbs are not browned after one minute, raise the heat.
- Place the cooked salmon pieces on a paper towel lined sheet tray.
- Keep the cooked salmon pieces warm, in a warming drawer or the lowest temperature of the oven, while the rest of the salmon pieces are being cooked.
- Serve immediately with a side of tartar sauce for dipping. (To make homemade tartar sauce place equal parts mayo and relish in a bowl and mix!)
