Salmon Fish Sticks


  • canola oil for frying
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1½ pounds skinless salmon, cut into 1-inch strips
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat enough oil in a cast-iron skillet to be 1 inch deep over medium-high heat.
  2. Put egg, flour, and bread crumbs in three separate small bowls.
  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in flour and shake off excess, dip in egg, and coat with bread crumbs.
  4. Fry fish in two batches until golden brown, about 1 minute per side; drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
Mealthy tip:

Always remember to wash a cast iron skillet by hand with a nylon bristle scrub brush. If needed, use a pan scraper for stuck on bits. For extra sticky situations, simmer a little water for 1 minute, then use the scraper after cooled. Dry promptly and then rub with a very light layer of cooking oil, preferably while the cookware is still warm.

Excellent! These salmon fish sticks are reminiscent of my favorite childhood dish, but way better! They're so good, I couldn't stop eating them. They're also incredibly quick and simple. The salt and pepper seasoning is basic, but I promise you don't need anything more than that. If you like salmon, you will absolutely love these.

Delicious, easy to make, and great with a remoulade dipping sauce that my wife makes. I've even got my parents hooked on these, the whole family loves these! They're really easy to make and best when cooked in a cast iron skillet.

Obsessed with these salmon fish sticks. They're my new favorite Friday night recipe to make. I want to also try them baked! That will be next. So glad I found this recipe.

I really love the "Salmon and Chips" from Ivars in Seattle so I thought I would give this recipe a try. The only thing I would have done differently with this recipe is add a bit more of a spice kick like a bit of cayenne or cajun seasoning. Other than that really good and easy to make.

Delicious recipe! The salmon is kind of delicate when doing the egg wash and dredging, so don't handle it too rough. They fry perfectly with a nice crunch too. We made a delicious tomato dipping sauce, but it's good by themselves too.

My kids and I loved them! Easy to make. I tried air frying them too and turned out almost as good, maybe even crispier. Just wasn’t sure what sauce to accompany them so we used ketchup.
