  • 16 ounces white fish
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed, ground
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs traditional or Panko
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup oil, avocado


  • Cut fish into 8 even 'sticks' and set aside. Whisk together eggs and pepper in a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish, combine the flaxseed, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese; blend well.
  • Coat fish sticks in egg mixture, allowing excess to fall off fish; then, dip in bread crumb mixture, coating both sides. Place onto a clean dish until ready to cook. Continue until all fish sticks have been coated.
  • Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place half the fish (or less if you are using a smaller skillet) into skillet in a single layer. Cook on each side for 4 minutes, allowing to brown evenly. Set aside and cover to keep warm. Add more oil to the skillet as needed, allowing to reheat before cooking remaining fish sticks. Serve warm with your favorite tartar sauce. Enjoy!
