I'm a nutritionist and needed a healthy fish fix. Moist inside and crunchy outside, these are great with oven fries or roasted veggies and low-fat homemade tartar sauce. —Jennifer Rowland, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

"First recipe that I have been able to keep the coating on the fish. This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe. I made it into fillets instead of sticks. Sides were asian rice and california vegetable blend."

"My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I left the fish fillets whole and used a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature since the fillets were thick. The only change I will make the next time I cook these will be to decrease the amount of salt. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Jennifer!"

"This recipe is good. I used Cod and it smelled really fishy during the baking process. However, the taste of the fish was not at all fishy. Picky toddlers and husband like the dish. I will try it with tilapia next time."

"Halibut is much higher in mercury than cod! Actually cod is in the "moderate" level as far as mercury is concerned, along with chunk light tuna and lobster. It does not have high levels of mercury, unlike other fish like swordfish and orange roughy. Recommendation is no more than 6 meals a month of moderate level fish for pregnant women and children. However, Other fish with a lower level are tilapia, flounder, and haddock - all of which can be substituted for cod. I would not hesitate using any of these fish for this recipe - or even cod on occasion if that's what i had on hand."

"The recipe in general is okay; however, you never want to use Cod. It is a fish with high levels of mercury. But, it is less expensive. I use hallibut instead as it doesn't have as high of a level of mercury. I know it is more expensive, but if you can't afford good health, you certainly can't afford illness. I wonder why a nutritionist would suggest cod! Instead of a cooking spray out of a can, a mister with olive oil is much better. To make it even healthier, homemade with organic bread is the best, but Panka could be a better choice than canned crumbs. Check label for high fructose corn syrup and MSG. All in all, not a bad recipe."

"Disappointing. Bland in taste and had to remove breading to check for flakiness (doneness). Glad only made 2 servings"

"Good but seemed a little lacking in flavor...I even used smoked paprika like another reviewer suggested. The addition of low fat tartar sauce fixed that though. Also--I completely forgot about the butter spray and it turned out that they didn't need it anyways."

"Delicious! Didn't get as brown as in the photo. Next time, I may try pan frying instead of using the oven."

"These were GREAT! SO easy and tasty! I added some Parmesan cheese to the breading. Kids loved it! MUCH better introduction of fish sticks to the kiddos than the boxed stuff!"
