Because fish sticks are both delicious and incredibly easy to make, I have them at least once a month. And even if they are from the store, who says you can’t make a delicious meal out of them?

So if you’re looking for ways to spice up your quick dinner, today is your lucky day. Here are 12 great side dishes you can serve with fish sticks.

1. Tartar sauce

We all know that anything beaten and baked needs love. And with fish sticks, you can’t go wrong with a simple tartar sauce.

And just like the fish sticks, the tartar sauce is easy to prepare. All you need is mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream, dill pickles, parsley, onion powder and lemon juice.

No time to do it from scratch? No problem. Store-bought tartar sauce works just as well.

2. Salsa and Guacamole

When I was young, my mom always served tartar sauce or ketchup with the fish sticks. I didn’t know then that you could dip the fish sticks in other sauces. Now that I’m grown up, I like to experiment with different sauces for my fried fish!

For example, salsa and guacamole are perfect for a Tex-Mex dinner. For the salsa I mix tomatoes, cilantro, onions, lime, salt and pepper. For the guacamole, I puree the avocado with the lime juice, cilantro and jalapeño and mix everything together.

If you have tortilla bread on hand, it’s perfect! You can make a hearty and delicious fish taco with fish sticks. Yummy!

3. French fries

Is there a more classic combination than good old fish and chips? I can’t believe it!

They already make all these great sauces, so why not serve the side dish that uses them? Not only are the fries delicious with the fish sticks, but also the spices that go with them.

And because the fryer is already prepared, cooking is much easier. Two birds with one stone, right?

But if you’re not a fan of all things fat, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these iconic and addictive fries. Just pop the potatoes in the oven for delicious, crispy fries without extra oil.

Don’t forget to sprinkle the potatoes with parmesan cheese, garlic and onion powder for maximum flavor!

4. French fries

Sweet potato fries add a sweet element to your savory dinner. He’s also healthier than his more popular cousin, to be honest.

You don’t have to fry the sweet potatoes either. Coat them with your favorite herbs and spices and bake them. I like to rub mine with paprika, chili powder, garlic powder and cumin. The combination of flavors is breathtaking.

5. Fried green tomatoes

Oh, how I love this southern side dish! They’re so delicious you don’t even know you’re eating tomatoes. I’m telling you, even the pickiest of eaters will love fried green tomatoes.

To prepare, sprinkle the green tomato slices with cornmeal and fry until golden brown. You’re already frying fish sticks, so you can use as much oil as possible.

6. Macaroni and cheese

Even though the fish sticks are coated in batter, this dish doesn’t contain many carbs. So you need something starchy to round out your dinner – and a bowl of macaroni and cheese is perfect for that part.

In addition to the filling, the macaroni and cheese give it an irresistible richness that pairs perfectly with the fish sticks.

For a healthier alternative, try replacing pasta with cauliflower! Of course nothing beats the original, but with this substitution you can eat more for less calories!

7. Koleslow

Besides the contrast in texture, you also get a nice combination of hot and cold when you combine the coleslaw with fish sticks. And because coleslaw is so refreshing, it balances out the richness of the fried fish. And the best part: It’s child’s play!

Whether you use pre-cut cabbage and carrots or grate them yourself, it only takes a few minutes to prepare this creamy and tasty side dish.

And whether you use a traditional mayonnaise-based dressing or a spicy one, coleslaw is always a great and tasty addition to fish sticks.

Remember, it’s tastiest when cold, so leave it in the fridge for a few hours before serving. This allows the flavors to mingle and makes the salad even tastier.

8. Fresh fruit

Fresh fruit is delicious with fish sticks, as a side dish or for dessert. I like to eat fish sticks with bananas, mangoes, pineapple and fresh grapes.

The fruit is a light and refreshing contrast to the fried dish, and together they form a balanced dish.

You can eat your favorite fruits as is, or you can make them sweeter by drizzling them with honey or maple syrup.

9. Cucumber salad

Here’s another crunchy and refreshing side dish to counterbalance the greasiness of fish sticks. Red onion, dill and oregano are all you need to make a simple but spectacular cucumber salad. Simply mix these ingredients together and drizzle with Greek yogurt. It’s that simple, isn’t it?

Cucumbers combined with red onions, oregano and dill, then topped with Greek yogurt – sounds like a refreshing side dish! This gives your rich, tender fish sticks a fresh, crisp contrast. Indeed, a perfect combination.

10. Fried okra

Not a fan of okra? Well, I’m sure this court will change your mind. Because there’s nothing that a simple batter and fryer can’t make.

Why not dip the green stick into the corn dough and grill it until golden. The transformation is so perfect you wouldn’t even know it was okra. And yes, it is phenomenal with fish sticks!

11. Fried vegetables

Since fish sticks are frozen and processed food, we all know it’s not the healthiest dish. So to make up for the lack of nutrients, combine the dish with roasted vegetables!

In addition to their health benefits, roasted vegetables add a nice pop of color to your plate.

And you can choose the vegetables you want! You can’t go wrong with root vegetables, so slice potatoes, carrots and onions and bake them.

What about Brussels sprouts? If you’re not a fan of the bittersweet flavor, you can mask it by sprinkling the Brussels sprouts with Parmesan cheese.

Roasted cauliflower tastes great too. You can cut the flowers off or just roast the whole cup! Season with the herbs and spices of your choice, but I like mine with parsley and sesame seeds.

Asparagus is another top choice for me. And because it also has a subtle bitter taste, I brush it with parmesan and breadcrumbs before grilling. This makes for a delicious treat and adds a nice crunch too!

12. Lemon rice

Fish sticks alone are not very filling, so serve a bowl of rice with them for a hearty, filling meal.

If you’re not a fan of stringy rice, a little lemon juice can make it a tasty, spicy side dish that balances the richness of the fish sticks.
