The school cafeteria favorite gets an update that will have you flipping! Parmesan Fish Sticks are fresher, crunchier, and more flavorful than anything you could find in the freezer aisle. The fish is tender and the exterior is crispy and infused with sharp, cheesy parmesan and herbaceous flavors. Parmesan Fish Sticks are quick to make and are amazing as a snack or as a main course!


• 1/3 cup all-purpose flour • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon pepper • 2 large eggs • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated • 2 tablespoons garlic-herb seasoning blend • 1 pound tilapia filets

Step 4

Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.

Step 5

In a third bowl, toss together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and seasoning blend.

Step 6

Cut the tilapia filets into wide strips, measuring 1-inch each.

Step 7

Dip each strip of the fish into the flour mixture, evenly coating both sides.

Step 8

Dip the floured strips into the egg mixture before dipping each of them into the crumb mixture.
