Dipping Sauce for Fish Sticks

Those that eat fish sticks know that the tartar sauce is half the delicious taste of having fish sticks. If you have some on hand in the fridge that is great! 

However, if you don’t, you can make it yourself! Allrecipes has a great quick tartar sauce recipe that you can make up at home and have the tartar sauce ready for when your fish sticks are fried to perfection. 

What Do You Serve With Fish Sticks? 

Many often serve fish sticks with fries (aka fish and chips) but that is not all! You can serve it with tartar sauce, guacamole and salsa, sweet potato fries, mac and cheese, coleslaw, and even a nice veggie salad.

How to Make Frozen Fish Sticks:

Step 1: Prepare the Air Fryer

Begin by lining the air fryer with parchment paper and then line the fish sticks in the air fryer spacing them out and making sure not to overlap the fish sticks so they will still cook evenly. 

Depending on how many people are eating you might have to make the fish stick in batches. 


Step 2: Make the Fish Sticks

Once you have the fish sticks lined up in the air fryer, spray the tops of them with nonstick cooking spray. 

Then place the basket in the air fryer and cook the fish sticks at 400F or 204C and cook them for 10-12 minutes. 

Half of way through the cooking time carefully open the basket and flip the fish sticks and spray them again with the nonstick cooking spray then return the air fryer basket to the air fryer and let the fish sticks continue to cook.
