Easy Breezy Fish Sticks

Servings: 1
Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 6 min

Ingredients:
1 cast-iron pan
1 cod fillet – room temperature
Kosher salt and pepper as needed
1 cup Gold Medal Flour – No substitutions
2 large eggs, beaten – room temperature
½ Cup chopped baby dill
1 cup panko bread cups
Extra virgin olive oil for frying

Preparation:
Preheat pan – Medium High

Slice cod into strips – about 1 inch

Season the fish with salt and let it temper

Season the flour with salt & pepper

Coat fish in flour – separate bowl

Coat fish in egg – separate bowl

Chop the dill, fold it into the bread crumbs

Coat fish in breadcrumbs

Drizzle enough olive oil around sides of pan to coat. Put fish sticks into the hot oil

Leave a 1 inch space between fish sticks. Do not touch them.

Let them cook for about 3 minutes on each side until golden. A bounce to the touch means done. Remove and serve immediately.

Mama G’s How To:

Temper, means to let the meat come to room temperature. Never put cold protein into a hot pan.

Season food holding your hand high above the food.

Gold Medal flour is best.

This recipe is great doubled.

Never pour olive into directly into a hot pan. It has a lower smoking point and will catch fire.

Pour a liberal amount of olive oil around sides of pan to coat. If you see wild smoke, immediately lift pan from stove.

I recommend cast-iron for all proteins.
