Fish Sticks are fun. This homemade, oven-baked version is crispy, tender, flaky, and SO delicious! Strips of fish are covered in bread crumbs and baked to perfection in this kid-friendly recipe. They make for a simple family dinner, or they can be served as an appetizer or even at a party. And don’t forget the homemade tartar sauce for dipping, and fries for the perfect side.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 pound cod fillets cut into 1-inch strips
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoons sweet or smoked paprika
  • Tartar Sauce for serving (store bought or click for recipe)


  1. Heat oven to 400°F and cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray the foil with nonstick spray. Spray a metal rack and place it over the baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper the fish.
  3. Note – Three shallow bowls are needed for the dredging process.
  4. In the first shallow bowl, place the flour.
  5. In the second bowl, whisk together eggs and Dijon mustard.
  6. In the third bowl, combine Panko bread crumbs and the seasoned dry bread crumbs.
  7. For the dredging process, press a fish stick in the flour, making sure to cover all sides and shake off the excess.
  8. Then, dredge the fish stick in the egg mixture and let the excess drip off. Now, press the fish in the breadcrumb mixture, patting to help the coating adhere.
  9. Place the coated fish stick on the prepared rack/baking sheet and repeat the process with the remaining fish sticks.
  10. Spritz the fish with olive oil or butter-flavored cooking spray.
  11. Place the fish in the oven and bake 6 minutes. Turn the fish sticks over and spray with oil or cooking spray.
  12. Bake another 6-10 minutes or until the fish begins to flake easily with a fork.
  13. Transfer cooked fish to a serving tray and serve immediately with Homemade Tartar Sauce or other favorite sauce.
  14. Enjoy!
