Trainer Approved Recipe: Grown Up Fish Sticks

It’s a trainer-approved recipe from my kitchen to yours! Fish in its natural state can be a bit of an acquired taste.  Fish processed and deep fried (of the “filet-o” variety), on the other hand, is of questionable value.  Here’s a great compromise: a recipe from my own kitchen for the whole family that’s high-fibre, low-cal and makes perfect fodder for those dip-loving youngsters (and husbands).  And it’s fast!

Yields 4 servings.

  • 3 large fillets of tilapia (approximately 1.5 pounds total)
  • 2 cups bran flake cereal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or white flour
  • salt & pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
2. Slice fish into hearty fingers of roughly equal proportion.  Salt & pepper to taste. 
3. Beat eggs.
4. Place cereal in large ziploc bag and crush well.
5. Dip fish thoroughly into flour, then egg; shake in cereal to coat.
6. Bake on lightly greased pan until cooked through but still moist, about 15 minutes.  Serve with a favourite sauce for dipping.
