Homemade Fish “Sticks”

Now, I don’t mind frozen fish sticks from the store. They’re convenient and easy to pop in the oven and I grew up on them, but as I was making them one day, I thought to myself, “these can’t be hard to just make from scratch.”

It took a few tries, but I found the seasoning mixture I love and I’m sticking to it! In all, this recipe calls for a seasoning mixture, flour, egg, milk and fish fillets. That’s it! I lean toward cod fillets. My kids also love cod so I pair this with broccoli and strawberries for them.


  • 2-3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or more depending on how many fish chunks you make)
  • Salt, pepper and cayenne ( I mix this into the flour for a little kick)
  • Seasoning mixture: Italian breadcrumbs, 2 tbs dried basil, 2 tbs dill weed (optional), 2 tbs onion powder, 2 tbs garlic powder, 1 tsp dried oregano, 2 tbs lemon pepper seasoning (McCormick sells a great one!), salt and pepper
  • 3 or 4 cod fillets that I cut into chunks (see finished photo for size recommendations)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet
  • Whisk together the milk and beaten eggs in a flat dish
  • Put the flour in a flat dish
  • Combine the seasonings listed in the ingredients section into a flat dish
  • Cut the cod fillets into small chunks and begin dredging the fish in the following order: egg mixture, flour, egg mixture again and then seasoning and onto the cookie sheet. This will give it a nice thick coating, trust me! Repeat for remaining chunks.
  • Bake in oven 10-15 minutes, do not over cook, but you’ll want the chunks to be nice and crispy.
The finished product. They may not look perfect, but they’re delish!
The kid plate. YUM!
