I made fish sticks for lunch today! OK. So we (I) am trying to make new foods that are healthy for the kids to eat for lunch. It was fairly inexpensive because the fish was only $5.99 and I had the other ingredients.
The cookbook that I use for the kids is “C is for Cooking” by Susan McQuillan, RD. It is a Sesame Street cookbook, and the kids love it!
1/3 c. tartar sauce
1/4 c. low-fat plain yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. dried breadcrumbs
1 pound cod fillets
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and grease a large cookie sheet
2. In a large bowl, stir together the tartar sauce, yogurt, and salt. Spoon half the mixture into a small bowl to use as a dip.
3. Spread the breadcrumbs on a large plate.
4. Cut the fish crosswise into 1/2 in. thick slices. Add the fish sticks to a large bowl with the yogurt mixture and stir gently to coat. Dip the fish sticks in the breadcrumbs one at a time and turn them over until they’re coated on all sides.
5. Place the breaded fish sticks on the cookie sheet.
6. Bake the fish sticks about 15 min. Serve with the yogurt dip.
I used vanilla yogurt because that was all that I had on hand. My kids said it was a little too sweet.
I put the breadcrumbs in the bowl to speed up the process because I had hungry tummies!
Mental note: next time follow directions EXACTLY. I have a bad habit of deviating and thinking it will turn out OK. It doesn’t.
The mixture did not stick as well because I mixed the breadcrumbs instead of putting them on a plate to dip.
The final product! Still edible. Not pretty but the kids asked for it a second day. SUCCESS with fish!
