Gluten Free Fish Sticks

4.5 from 4 reviews

Crispy, crunchy fish sticks made with fresh fish and gluten-free breading, this kid-favorite meal is way healthier than the storebought version!


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax
  • 1 cup gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese or vegan Parmesan topping
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound cod fillets


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Add flour to a plate and set aside. Pour the coconut milk into a shallow dish and set aside.
  3. In a separate shallow dish, combine the flax meal, bread crumbs, Parmesan, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Using paper towels, pat dry each fillet of Cod before slicing into 1/2-inch thick strips.
  5. To dredge, dip each fish piece into the flour, then the milk, and finally, the crumb mixture, coating both sides and pressing lightly to adhere.
  6. Place the fish sticks onto the baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart, and bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown, flipping once halfway through.



Don’t need an egg-free version? Omit the coconut milk and flax and use 2 eggs instead.
