Stir-Fried Spaghetti with Fish Sticks


These finger-licking homemade fish sticks don’t compare at all to the store-bought version. Paired with a sophisticated “twist” on spaghetti, you have a meal that is sure to please the entire family.  


Prepare the Fish

1. Wash the fish fillets and pat dry. (If using frozen fish, soak in lemon juice and salt for an hour first to remove fishy taste.)
2. Cut each fillet into 3/4-inch (2-cm) strips and dip in flour. Shake off excess.
3. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the mustard, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, salt, and pepper.
4. In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the zaatar, remaining 1/2 teaspoon paprika, and sesame seeds.
5. Heat oil in a pan for frying. Dip each fish stick first in the egg mixture and then in bread crumb mixture. Fry the fish sticks until golden, turning halfway through. Drain on paper towels.

Prepare the Pasta

1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and sauté the garlic until golden.
2. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and sauté about one minute.
3. Add the pasta and stir-fry for three minutes. Add the basil or parsley and remove from heat. Serve with the fish sticks.
