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.

Crispy Salmon Fish Sticks

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.

Crispy Salmon Fish Sticks

Even for adults, these salmon fish sticks are a new way to enjoy salmon!

Made this for dinner last night. My whole family loved it thanks for sharing such a great recipe with us. Food Packaging Boxes
Meaghan says:
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!
Meaghan says:
They're wonderful!
Katherine Turner says:
Do you think you could do this with an almond flour coating (like you use for eggplant fries)? I’m trying to go low carb and wheat free so attempting to avoid Panko! Also, allergic to salmon, what do you think would be a good sub?
Meaghan says:
While we haven't tried any substitutes, we definitely recommend experimenting with what works best for you. You could always try cod!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
