Crispy Salmon Fish Sticks

A healthier version of crispy fish sticks, using zero oil with the air fryer! Seasoned panko breadcrumbs give these fish sticks a crispy exterior and the salmon is a heart healthy source of fats.

Most toddlers love fried foods and these crispy fish sticks have the same texture as a fried fish stick, without the processed oils!

Crispy Salmon Fish Sticks

If you have a picky eater that doesn’t love seafood, try these fish sticks out and you may surprise your little one! Dipped in their favorite condiment, these crispy sticks are a tasty way to enjoy fish with your family.

The air fryer works its magic and ensures each fish stick is nice and crispy!

As a side, try a refreshingly crunchy Caesar salad or some roasted or steamed broccoli with lemon. Or make this truly “fish and chips” by serving it with some potato wedges or French fries.

So glad you gave this a try! It's a winnner!
I must admit I'm still to try an air fryer, but looking at how deliciously crispy they look I think it's time to invest!

and since we all appreciate a good lu review, he thought these were buffalo chicken wraps when I first served them to him! 😜 ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
