This delicious recipe for mini fish sticks will help you and your kids get in a key food we don’t eat enough of. Reposted with permission from Living a Real Life with Real Food from Beth Warren, MS, RD, CDN, the recipe packs in plenty of protein, a good dose of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and little saturated fat and sodium. It also packs in plenty of “real food,” defined by Beth as “Less processed, God given foods, meant to be manipulated into delicious meals and snacks in our own kitchens and not by the food industry.”

Paired with vegetables, it makes a crunchy and satisfying dinner the whole family can enjoy.

Mini Fish Sticks

Yields 10 servings

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon low fat (1%) milk

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 pound cod fillets, cut into 20 (1-inch) strips

1 cup whole grain panko (i.e. “Ians” Japanese breadcrumbs)

¼ cup flaxmeal

3/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

3/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

3/8 teaspoon garlic powder

3/8 teaspoon onion powder

2 tablespoons canola oil, divided

Directions:

1. Combine milk and eggs in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add fish, and toss gently to coat. Place flaxmeal, panko, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large zip-top bag. Add fish to panko mixture; seal bag. Shake bag gently to coat fish.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of fish; cook 4 minutes or until done, turning occasionally to brown all sides. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining fish. Serve with tarter dipping sauce if desired.

Makes four servings: 1 chicken and 1 vegetable skewer each

Preparation time: 15 minutes (+ marinating time)

Cook time: 12 minutes

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup hummus

Juice of 1/2 small lemon (1 tablespoon)
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

2 large bell peppers, preferably 1 red and 1 green, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium red onion, quartered lengthwise, wedges separated

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

 

Directions:

1. Stir together the hummus, lemon juice, cumin, and 2 tablespoons cold water in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and stir to fully coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

3. Grill the chicken and vegetable kebabs over direct medium-high heat until fully cooked, about 12 minutes total, rotating only as needed.

4. Season with the salt, and serve.
