I have a confession.
I, Dara Gurau, was a loyal follower of The Captain. Who could resist his smiling bearded face and oh so convenient frozen breaded fish sticks. All you needed was 20 minutes, a toaster oven, and you too could have a fish dinner on the table in a flash.
But as I got older and a littler wiser, I discovered I could make my very own fish sticks that I could store in my freezer and have an even better tasting and healthier dinner on my table in the same amount of time.
These fish sticks are coated in a crunchy and cheesy breadcrumb mixture and baked until tender and browned. I’ve used tilapia but they would also be great with halibut, salmon, or cod
I served these up with a tangy and delicious yogurt and mayo dipping sauce. But they would also be fantastic dipped into some good old ketchup. Cook up a big batch, wrap ’em up in your freezer, and you have your own fresher and tastier frozen fish sticks.
So while The Captain may still be a handsome man, I am no longer a loyal follower of his frozen seafood line. And as soon as you whip up a batch these fish fingers, I think you too will be waving The Captain good bye.
