Gluten-free Baked Fish Sticks

Last Updated on June 10, 2020

Growing up, fish stick day at school was one of my favorite lunch days! I don’t even know if kids my age liked fish at the time, but all that meant was more for me, so I was happy being the odd man out.

We eat fish about 3 times a week, so I always like to change up my fish game every now and then. I make these all the time using whatever crumbs I have lying around, but this time decided to blend up one of my favorite gluten-free crackers and they worked like a charm.

My favorite type of fish to use for these is cod, but any white fish would well well. Pair them with some oven baked French fries for the ultimate finger food extravaganza!

Dipping sauces are highly encouraged, so I included one of my favorites to pair with these- lemon garlic aioli. These are best eaten fresh, but can be prepped ahead of time and frozen once cooked for up to 2 months.

I know you guys will love them, and can’t wait to hear what you think.
