Breaded Fish Fingers

Updated: Dec 3, 2021

I think fish is a great ingredient to work with. And as a kid, we used to eat a lot of fish fingers. Now that my kids are growing up at the speed of light, I can't keep up with the number of fish fingers so I make my own now. I can make them so much better and just the way the kids like it.

These breaded fish fingers are made with fish fillets, just sliced into thick fingers. This recipe is something I will throw together when the kids and in the mood for fish and chips. Add some tartar sauce and some spicy potato wedges and you have the perfect evening meal.
