Gluten Free Fish Sticks | Healthy School Lunch Ideas


– Crispy, delicious,
gluten-free fish sticks are exactly what we’re making today, since so many of you have
asked for a delicious way to get the kids to eat more fish. It goes without saying that you’ll be able to
make these fish sticks with regular panko
crumbs and regular flour, so just make sure to check the
recipe link below the video. Now first, we’re preheating our oven, and we’re gonna line
this large baking sheet with parchment paper. So breaded fish is really
easy, although a little messy. So I’ve got three
shallow dishes right here that I’m gonna line up. In this first dish, I’m
just gonna place my flour, regular or gluten-free. In this next dish, I’m going
to add some coconut milk. This is the wet ingredient. Typically, we use an egg, but this recipe is super allergy-friendly, which means that there’s
no egg, no gluten, but full of flavor. And, in the last dish,
I’m going to combine some flax meal, gluten-free
breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, paprika, salt, and pepper. Now if you need to make
this recipe dairy-free, omit the Parmesan cheese. What you want to do is
have your dishes set up so you can make an assembly
line while breading the fish. Now today I am using cod
because it’s firmer, tender, and it holds up really well when breaded, whether you bake it or fry it. So I’m just gonna cut
these large pieces of fish into thick slices. So first I’m going to
place a few pieces of fish into the flour, making sure
that each side is covered. And then, I’m going to dip
them in the coconut milk. And finally, dredge
them in the breadcrumbs, pressing lightly for the crumbs to adhere. Now you want to make sure that you get all of the delicious crunch in each bite. So we just place each piece
onto our baking sheet, making sure to spread them out. Now if you want to make a whole meal out of these fish sticks, you can just slice some sweet potatoes, season them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and bake them right along
with the fish sticks. It’s much healthier than
the classic fish and chips. Plus, you get an entire meal in one pan. Okay, so let’s bake these
for 20 to 25 minutes until they’re golden-brown. After 15 minutes, I’m just going to flip
each fish stick over so both sides toast perfectly. Okay, these are ready. Let’s check these out. Crunchy on the outside,
perfectly flaky inside, full of flavor. They’re really incredible. These are everything I hoped for, and they’re totally
kid- and adult-approved. Mm, mm. The recipe is below, as
well as another video you might want to check out. Remember to hit that red subscribe button. A new video comes out every single week. (upbeat music)
