Ever since I was a little girl I have loved fish sticks. I grew up in the 80's where fish sticks were a weeknight meal staple, and unlike many of my friends who now cringe at the thought, I would still eat fish sticks on the daily. However because store bought fish sticks are full of carbs and preservatives, I wanted to make keto fish sticks for both my family to enjoy.
Fish is a great protein to eat when on the keto diet because it is loaded with protein and vitamin D, but also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for your body and brain function. Plus there are so many different types of fish recipes, you have endless options! For a more savory dish try my Baked Salmon with Lemon Parmesan Cream Sauce. It is keto too!

The girls and I love keto fish sticks because they are so easy to make – using parmesan as a keto fish breading gives a great crunch but also tons of flavor. You can also experiment with seasonings in your parmesan mixture – I have added lemon pepper and even Cajun seasoning to give them a little bit of a kick!
I have also used coconut flour and THAT was also amazing – even though it was a bit higher in carbs. Since fish is naturally zero carb food, the carbs would only come from the breading – and whatever you decide to dip them in.
I will never buy store bought fish sticks again. These are not only healthier, but they have so much more flavor! This is a quick and easy kid friendly keto recipe perfect for busy weeknights!
