Vegan "Fish" Sticks

In the south we're famous for fried fish and we consider it a staple food. There is always someone somewhere having a fish fry and I refuse to miss out on the nostalgia of a good "fish fry" simply because I don't eat fish. Wait, that doesn't even make any sense right? How you gonna eat fish and be vegan at the same time? Well, the solution is simple......EGGPLANT. Seriously, this recipe is so incredibly simple, delicious and it doesn't taste the least bit like eggplant. The best thing about this recipe is that it is super inexpensive and one eggplant makes around 4 servings so it's perfect if you're on a budget.
