Gluten-Free Recipe: Kid-Friendly Fish Sticks
Kids aren’t always big fans of fish, but they usually like fish sticks. They’re a finger food, and that’s always fun. What’s not fun is realizing that your gluten-free child can’t eat fish sticks because they are coated with gluten.
Don’t worry. You can make your own gluten-free fish sticks, and your family will be impressed. Mine always is.
This recipe calls for gluten-free bread crumbs. You can make your own by drying about 4 –5 slices of gluten-free bread in a 300° oven for 10 – 15 minutes. Then, break up the bread and put it in a food processor or blender and process until the crumbs are fine.
You might also consider using a different coating. Tortilla crumbs, corn meal, or crushed potato chips will work.

- In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork until the white no longer holds together.
- In another bowl, combine the rice flour, potato starch, salt, and pepper.

- Working with several pieces at a time, coat the fish with flour, dredge in the beaten egg, and then coat with bread crumbs. Place on the baking sheet.
