Ingredients for salmon sticks:
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 large egg whites
- 1-pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into ½-inch strips
Ingredients for dip:
- 1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise

- 1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
Equipment and supplies:
- Cooking spray
- Baking sheet and cooking rack or parchment paper
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Whisk or mixer
- 2 large bowls
- 1 small bowl
- Preheat oven to 400ºF (204ºC). Line a rimmed baking sheet with a cooking rack and spray generously with cooking spray. If you don’t have a cooking rack, line a baking sheet with parchment paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk or beat egg whites until they are light and foamy. In another large bowl, stir together the panko breadcrumbs, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and pepper. Dip each salmon stick into the egg whites and then press into the crumb mixture, making sure the crumbs coat the salmon.

- Serve salmon sticks warm with a small amount of dipping sauce.
