On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing a quick and easy, step-by-step, healthy homemade fish sticks recipe.
I mean, seriously, who didn’t love eating fish sticks as a kid?
My hand is up!
So on today’s Brad’s Cookbook episode, we’re going to make a healthy homemade version of fish sticks.
Not the unhealthy frozen kind you get out of a cardboard box at the grocery store.
This video came as a request from a Sherry on our @LiveLeanTV Facebook page.
She’s kicking butt with our Transformation 1,000,000 mission, and she wanted to know how to include more fish into her diet.
Sherry specifically wanted a recipe with a white fish called tilapia.
Tilapia is a lower calorie source of fish, as it’s primarily made up of protein, with a little bit of fat, and zero carbohydrates per serving.
However, be sure to avoid all tilapia, or any fish, that is imported from China and Taiwan as it has been found to contain high levels of antibiotics and other drugs.
For this homemade fish sticks recipe, you can also use other healthier sources of white fish like cod, haddock, and halibut.
And the really cool thing about this homemade fish sticks recipe is that it reminds me of the fish sticks I used to eat as a kid.
The only difference is these delicious fish sticks are healthy, since we use all real ingredients, unlike those fish sticks from a cardboard box.
So go grab the following ingredients and lets start making these healthy homemade fish sticks.
This is going to be good!

So it’s time to get rid of the cardboard boxed frozen fish sticks, and swap it out with all these healthy, real ingredients.
You can’t get any better than that.
This is just another example of how easy it is to make real food taste great.
The onion powder gives it a delicious flavor, and the fish sticks also have a little bit of a crust, so it’s crunchy.
It’s time to go in for seconds.
By the way, I still haven’t mastered the art of cracking an egg with one hand yet.
