We’ve all been there! That craving for comfort foods can be pretty strong, especially around the holidays. Before spoiling all your hard work, try this healthier spin on a family classic.

Ingredients for about 10 fish sticks:

  • ~1.5 lb halibut (or firm white fish like cod or tilapia)
  • 1/2 cup gluten free panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup amaranth flakes (OR whole grain flakes, no sugar)
  • 1/4 cup grated/shredded parmesan (reduced fat)
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white

Ingredients for lemon dipping sauce:

  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup red onion chopped (OR 1 tbsp onion powder)
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • sea salt & pepper to taste

Quick steps:

  1. Set oven to 405F.
  2. Cut fish into long pieces so they resemble slender fillets.
  3. Mix panko, flakes, parmesan, Italian seasoning and cayenne together in a bowl.
