How to Make Bruschetta Fish Sticks
If you want to prevent the oil temperature from dropping, don’t fry too many sticks. It will be too crowd. Plus, clean the excessive breadcrumb falling to the bottom of your skillet before it gets burn.
- 20 oz of cod fillet
- ¼ cup of fresh basil sliced finely
- Vegetable oil
- Black pepper, freshly ground
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 2 large sized whole eggs
- 2 cup of panko brad crumbs
- Kosher salt
- 2 cloves of garlic, grate
- 1 pt of cherry tomatoes
1Cut the cod fish into an inch tenders, and season with pepper and salt. Set aside. Cut each of the cherry tomatoes into four even pieces, and toss it into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add in ¼ teaspoon of salt and garlic, and set aside.
2Take three large sized mixing bowls. Into the first bowl, add ½ teaspoon of salt and panko bread crumbs. Into the second bowl, add one tablespoon of water and the eggs. Beat them until well mixed. Into the third bowl, add flour.
3Take a piece of the fish stick. Roll it on the flour and shake to remove excessive flour, dip it into the egg, and roll it on to the bread crumbs mixture. Set aside on a plate, and repeat the steps for the remaining fish sticks.
4Take a large skillet, add enough vegetable oil to rather deep fry the sticks, and heat the oil over medium heat. An inch depth oil should be enough. Wait until the oil is hot enough, then toss in the fish sticks and fry it. Wait until it turns brown and golden, then flip to fry the other side. Two minutes per side should be enough.
5When it is ready, transfer the fish sticks into a plate lined with oil absorbing paper. Immediately season it with salt, and set aside. Do the same frying steps for the rest of the fish sticks. Transfer the fish sticks into a serving plate. Top with bruschetta, and garnish with basil if you want to.
This is a great twist of the regular fish sticks, and bruschetta. The combination is smart as well as totally scrumptious.
