I made Homemade Fish Sticks one evening for dinner when I realized I had to improvise dinner quickly. I had all the ingredients in the pantry already - fish, various spices, panko breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. These fish sticks baked quickly in the oven, and were still very crisp and delicious. I enjoyed them, and most importantly, both kids did, too! It was a great recipe for all and prep and clean up were easy!
