Had seen part of a commercial for a different way to prepare Salmon done by Giada Delaurentis on the cooking channel, picked up the jist of what she had done, so gave it a shot tonite.
I filleted and fully deboned and removed the skin from the small pink I'd brought home, cut him into fish stick size pieces and strips.
Pieces were layed out on a cutting board so I could sprinkle seasoning on them, both sides.
I used Johnny's Alaskan Salmon seasoning, but if a person has a favorite, say Old Bay or any other they like, use them. The seasoning was allowed to penetrate and start to draw moisture from the meat, while I got out the other ingredients.
I tossed the seasoned pieces in corn starch to fully coat them,
then dipped them in an egg wash (egg and just a bit of water wisked together)
before tossing them into a mixture of plain bread crumbs and Panko bread crumbs.
I lightly sprayed a baking sheet with Crisco spray, arranged the pieces on the pan without crowding them, gave the coated sticks another shot of Crisco spray, and popped them into the oven set @ 350 with a timer set for 7 min. turned the pieces over and set the timer for another 7 min. and with another quick spritz of Crisco put the pan back in. At this time I also had to try one of the smaller pieces, I was quite impressed so far.
When the buzzer sounded, I turned them once more, to be sure they were browned a little more, and done through set the timer for another 5 min.
They came out golden brown, crunchy like a good fish stick should be, the meat was firm and flaked nicely when bit into, couldn't really decide whether they were better with or without Skippers tartar sauce.
I don't have kids, but I'll bet these will beat store bought bagged chopped and formed sticks, they do for me.
Being a big kid at heart, if you can't tell, I still like a good fish stick.
