You would have panko-crusted fish sticks with herb in vegetable oil, but what about something with Aliz olive oil. It is so simple to deep fry panko in olive oil and it proves to those who believe that olive oil is not good for deep frying.
The tilapia fillets become yummy with panko, but soak them with egg to bond them well. The addition of coarse pepper creates a unique and fresh taste.
Serve the sticks with sour cream and parsley or mayonnaise because it becomes creamy. If you don’t like mayonnaise, you can make a sauce with yogurt.
My friend once invited me to dinner where I tasted panko-crusted fish sticks with herb which was yummy. Though she had it from a restaurant through home delivery but my curiosity did not let me rest so I opt for its recipe.
I love experiments so I always make it with a variety of sauces. My favorite is chili garlic sauce but I also love the creamy dips like mayonnaise. These fish sticks also compliment pasta and rice of any kind.
Having the sticks alone with tea, coffee, or soft drink would also be more than good.
