4 Tilapia fish fillets or other firm, white fish
3 cups gluten-free crispy rice-style cereal
¼ cup canola oil
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray baking sheet lightly with nonstick spray.
1. Cut fish into strips. Set aside.
2. Place cereal, salt, and pepper in zip-type bag. Crush into a fine texture. Cereal should yield approximately 1 cup of crumbs. Place crumbs onto a plate. Set aside.
3. Place oil in a small bowl. Dip fish into the oil, then immediately roll them in the crumbs. Place on a prepared pan. Continue until all the fish sticks are coated.
4. Bake for approximately 15 minutes until fish is cooked through and no longer opaque.
