Fancy Fish Sticks

(Serves 4)

INGREDIENTS                                                                                                                                                                                                                      2 lbs. white fish, such as halibut, flounder or cod
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons Ocean's Balance Kelp Purée
1-1/2 cups Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
Canola oil for frying

DIRECTIONS                                                                                                                                                                                                                Using a sharp knife, cut fish into rectangular sticks, trying to maintain a uniform thickness (trim off very thin end pieces), approximately 2- inches long and 1-inch wide. Arrange breadcrumbs on 1/2 of a large cutting board. Break eggs into bowl and whip with a whisk until a frothy. Whisk in kelp purée. Coat fish sticks in egg/kelp mixture, then roll in bread crumbs, shaking off excess crumbs.  Heat approximately 1 cup oil in a medium sauté pan. Working in batches, cook the fish sticks for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until lightly brown. Adjust heat if they are cooking too quickly.  Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately. 

Try dipping them in Ocean Mayonnaise or Ocean Cocktail Sauce for an extra taste of the sea.
