Tilapia Fish Sticks

I’m always trying to create healthier versions of food my children love and decided to make homemade fish sticks. Here is my Tilapia Fish Sticks recipe, which is a success in our house!


1 lb Tilapia ~ 3 filets
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp Wheat Germ
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
2 C Whole Wheat Panko bread crumbs, divided

*this is a personal prefernce, I used 2 tsp of a Seafood Blend that included sea salt, dill,and lemon peel. You could just use salt and pepper.


Place Tilapia, wheat germ, ground flax seed, spice, and 1/4C of Panko bread crumbs in food processor and pulse until ground and pasty.

Place Panko bread crumbs on a plate, and beaten eggs in a bowl. Form Tilapia mixture into desired shape desired, dip into beaten egg, then into bread crumbs.

Heat oil in fry pan. Place some of the fish in without overcrowding. Fry on both sides for about 4-5 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

Serve and enjoy.
Bon Appétit!

These fish sticks freeze nicely. I placed them on a baking sheet, froze them, and transferred them to a bag.

To reheat, I place on a baking sheet and and cooked in a 350F oven for 15 minutes, or until warmed through.
