We have been hearing a lot about fish fries so I decided it was a good chance to incorporate fish into our own dinner menu for the week. Fish Sticks are a favorite of my girls + most kids if I had to guess, so that was the perfect choice. When made from scratch, they are much healthier + fresher tasting which makes for smiles all around the table. This recipe is easy to manage + pairs well with any vegetable or side dish. The dip that I like to create is greek yogurt based + is fitting for the fish flavor. 

These sticks take less than 30 minutes to make + you’ll have a healthy meal for your family with fresh ingredients that you can pronounce.  It’s easier than you think to make your own at home with a stunning taste that is well worth the effort. If you are in a pinch for time, you can make about half the fish into the sticks for the kids + set aside the remainder of the larger pieces for the adults. Or you can make them into a fish sandwich which can be a great alternative that everyone in the family can enjoy.
