I loved fish tacos, but didn't really like the fat in deep frying or the mess it makes in the house. This recipe is a similar take on baked unfried chicken. This recipe actually makes the fish crispier than frying and it holds up well with the delish dill sauce!

Prep time:
Cook time:


  • Fish Breading:
  • 1/2c plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2c corn flake crumbs
  • 1/2c flour
  • Salt or Seasoned Salt to Taste (I like a lemon-dill seafood salt)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1lb white fish (tiliapia, cod or anything you like)
  • Dill Sauce:
  • 1/2c Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2c Mayonaise
  • 3-4 limes
  • 1/2-1 tsp ground dill seed
  • 1/2-1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2-1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • Chopped pepper of your choice added to your taste. I use a can of chopped jalapenos because it's quick & easy.
  • Salt to taste


  2. Heat oven to 450 degrees
  3. Slice the fish into 1" X 3" strips
  4. Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Coat the rack and sheet with non-stick spray.
  5. Mix bread crumbs, corn flake crumbs and salt in a shallow dish to dip the fish into.
  6. Put flour in another dish and the egg whites in third dish.
  7. Lightly beat the egg whites.
  8. Coat each fish strip with flour, then dip in the egg whites and coat with the crumb mixture.
  9. Place on wire rack.
  10. Spray more non-stick spray on the fish sticks if desired.
  11. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
  13. Mix greek yogurt and mayo.
  14. Squeeze lime juice into the mixture until the consistency is runny.
  15. Add remaining ingredients and you're done!

      Thanks Kyra. This recipe is a combination of several that I've tried over the years and tweaked. These are fantastic with fresh caught fish in the summer! Enjoy.
