Today I’m sharing an easy, delicious and crispy oven-baked Dill Fish Sticks that you can make from the comfort of your own home. This dish brings back childhood memories for me. I used to snack on fish sticks when I’d come home from school as they were easy for my grandma to bake for me. I’ve added my own twist to make these a little healthier by adding fresh dill and instead of frying them, they are baked in the oven for only 12 minutes!
As you know, supporting sustainable seafood is incredibly important to me and this mission of my blog. By purchasing certified sustainable seafood, you are choosing seafood that’s good for you and the oceans too! Purchasing certified sustainable seafood with the @MSCbluefish label is a small gesture with a big environmental impact. It’s also accessible at every price point and budget!
That’s why I’ve proudly partnered with MSC, The Marine Stewardship Council, who is a non-profit global organization that has been established to keep our oceans healthy and protect the last major food resource that is truly wild: seafood. The MSC works with fisheries, grocery stores, restaurants, and other companies to change the way the oceans are fished, address food fraud, and make it simple for consumers to identify and purchase sustainable, traceable, wild seafood with the MSC blue fish label. They also work with scientists, conservation groups, and seafood industry to create the world’s most recognized standard for seafood sustainability.
How to Look for Certified Sustainable Seafood?
Look for the @MSCbluefish label on your favorite seafood products and know your purchase comes from a wild, traceable, sustainable source that works to conserve the marine environment. Certified sustainable seafood is available in the canned/pouched section, frozen aisle, fresh fish counter, as well in pet foods. The Blue Fish Label is only applied to wild fish and seafood that has been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard.
