Toons and Miles love these fish sticks, so I had to share the recipe! They’re so golden and crispy, you’d think they were fried, but NOPE – panko bread crumbs and a high-temperature bake give them the crunch we love so much. Pro tip: adding the paprika throughout the dip gives them that signature golden color you usually need to fry to achieve! Try to use the freshest fish you can, and if you’re buying it from a fish store, ask them to take the skin off.
