  6. Place Corn Flakes in shallow bowl
  7. Heat oil in deep skillet over medium-high heat
  8. Hand-roll fish mixture into sticks or patties (they don’t have to be perfect) then gently roll in Corn Flakes
  9. Fry in oil until crispy brown on both sides, approximately 7 minutes total

This was my first attempt at making homemade fish sticks.  By flaking cooked white fish and combining it with seasoning, I topped it off with a Corn Flakes coating and the result was delicious- the kids and I couldn’t stop eating them.  They taste like a healthier, modern version of a retro diner food, which is why I included them in my “Peggy Sue’s Diner Weekly Meal Plan“.
