fish sticks are the devil!
I just bought some "catfsih nuggets" from my local market. they sell them under that label because they are the cutoffs from the fileting process, but are still good eats. so they sell them around 2.50 a pound, and on sale I bought about two pounds for 4 dollars. I flour dredge them, egg/buttermilk solution dip them, then dredge them in panko. After that, its into the deep fryer for the best deep fried fish I could ever wish to make. Its perfect for filling when making fish tacos, which is primarily what I use the nuggets for.
I'm a cheap shopper who looks for quality at all times. My market just doesn't see the value in the cutoffs they sell dirt cheap. :)
