Baked Fish Sticks

Winters and holidays combined together always demands something hot to munch,may that be any good appetizer/snack/soups.But at the same,a perfect time to slide in your fleece/blankets and stay warm.And so,is the deal at my home too,though moms hardly find time when they got to prepare these munchies or prepare meals,Isn't it?? But how about making the work a bit easier by preparing the baked fish cutlets well ahead and then they just have to be reheated or microwaved to serve hot.So,all moms start preparing this filling healthy snack and enjoy the winters & holidays.Also,if you are looking out for easy appetizer for Christmas feast/ New year eve then this is for you.These are crisp bread & cheese coated fish sticks served best with mayonnaise,ketchup or BBQ sauce !!

fish fillets 5-6
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
all purpose flour 1/2 cup
pepper powder 1 tbsp
salt 1/2 tsp
bowl 2
egg 1 beaten
salt 1/4 tsp
bowl 3
bread crumbs 1/2 cup
cheese grated 1/2 cup
pepper powder 1/2 tsp

-Wash and clean the fillets,by rubbing lemon juice & salt.Sort out atleast 1/2" thick pieces and cut it in 4" length * 1/2" width.(PS: The pieces should be uniformly thick other wise some pieces may turn brown quickly and others may take time)
-Pat dry the fish in a paper towel.Marinate the fish with salt & pepper powder,keep aside for 15-20 mins.
-In the meantime,take three bowls and in the first bowl take the flour,pepper powder,salt.Mix well.In another bowl beat the egg lightly,add salt.Leave aside.In the third bowl,add the grated cheese, bread crumbs & pepper powder.
-Dip each of the fish fillets in the flour,Shed off the excess flour.Then,dip in egg mix and then roll it in bread crumbs fully.
-Pre heat oven to 450 degrees F and line a tray with olive oil.Place the rolled fish sticks on the tray.
-Place it in the tray and bake for 15 mins or till the crust turns golden brown.Remove from oven & Serve warm with BBQ sauce or your desired dip !!

Servings ~ 15 sticks

* You can omit the cheese and use bread crumbs alone.Cheese adds to the taste.You can use parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese.
* You can use tilapia fillets,cod fillets or salmon to make fish sticks.I used tilapia,have removed the thin portion of fillets pieces and used for other stir fries.
* You can use paprika too to the seasoning or any other desired seasoning.I haven't used it.
* You can use egg white alone too.
* You can coat the fish sticks with crushed plain corn flakes too.
