80--- Grilled Fish Sticks

Because it's fair food season.  You know, fried food (on a stick)?

And rather than eating this.....(confession, I swoon for funnel cake)

Or this.....(confession, if I had one wish it would be to have corn dogs be good for you) (just kidding- maybe if I had 20 wishes I would use one on that)

I think you should have some fish instead.

You know, for your health!

Grilled Fish Sticks
Serves 2

6-8 oz white fish (halibut, cod, etc), sliced into 1" thick slices
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, pressed and finely minced
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 tsp fresh basil, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper
Olive oil spray
6-8 wooden skewers

Combine water, oil, lemon, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a large plastic bag (quart size will do).  Add fish strips and place in refrigerator for 1-3 hours.

Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium heat and spray well-cleaned rack generously with olive oil. Place soaked skewers lengthwise through fish strips.  Use a paper towel to gently blot fish of moisture (this will ensure that fish does not stick to the grill).  Place fish sticks onto the grill and cook for ~ 10 minutes, flipping halfway (if desired- not entirely necessary).

Remove and serve immediately!

  1. If you don't have a grill can you broil, bake or pan cook these? Thanks.

    1. Yes Tameka! I would recommend baking them or even breaking out the George Foreman grill if you have one!
