Recipe: Fish Fingers

20th January 2017

Fish fingers; they’re a staple in most households. Easy to pop in the oven on a school night and full of good-for-you oils, they’re a fast and popular choice. In my childhood, it was all about the frozen fish fingers but I’m not quite ready to turn to Birds Eye just yet. No, we’re making our own; fish finger recipe at the ready!

Home-made fish fingers are far simpler to make than you probably imagine. Not only that, they taste incredible too. What started as a way to start getting fish into our baby’s diet, quickly turned into a chance for us to have a sneaky fish finger sandwich at the same time. Delicious. Here’s a simple fish finger recipe for you to get involved

  • One skinless fillet of firm white fish such as cod or haddock
  • Two pieces of bread made into breadcrumbs

  • Pepper to season

Recipe:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C / Gas mark 4-5 and spray a baking tray with fry-light

    I always loved fish fingers as a child but I’m not a great lover of fish itself, I find it so hard to still be able to introduce it into Bear’s diet as I want him to try everything but so far have struggled a bit as fish is something I’m not sure how to cook and we don’t have it. However, I’m definitely trying out this recipe! It looks so easy and great for little hands 🙂 I think we will both love them, and who doesn’t love fish finger butties haha! Xx

      They’re so yummy. We’re a bit the same, always eating the same thing so I’m trying to be a little more adventurous with what we put in front of him! Thanks for reading
