Homemade Fish Sticks & Tartar Sauce

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 25 minutes

Trust me, you’ll want to stick with these.

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.

  • 1

    cup mayonnaise

  • 2

    tablespoons finely chopped dill pickles

  • ¼

    cup finely chopped sweet pickles

    cup all purpose flour

    teaspoon sweet paprika, plus more for seasoning

    cup panko bread crumbs

  • cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

    tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for baking sheet

    eggs, beaten
