Cornmeal and Parmesan form the coating for crunchy homemade fish sticks that are as fast as they are fresh. Serve with your favorite cocktail or tartar sauce and lemon wedges.

  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound farm-raised catfish fillets, cut into 1-inch thick strips


  • Preheat the oven to 475F.
  • Lightly oil or coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Combine the cornmeal, cheese, garlic powder, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well.
  • Place the oil in a small bowl. Lightly coat each piece of fish in the oil and then roll in the breading until well coated.
  • Arrange the fish on the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
