Fish Fingers
am not going to give quantities because it depends on the size of fish you buy. My recipe made 18 fish fingers today but it varies. The spices you add to the breadcrumbs are up to you. I use paprika but sometimes I use Italian herbs, oregano and freshly grated parmesan.


1 kg fresh haddock/cod, skinned & boned & cut into fingers

2 cups breadcrumbs

1-2 Tbsp full fat mayonnaise

1 tsp smoked paprika

1tsp table salt


  • Put the breadcrumbs, salt and spices in a bowl.

  • Put the mayonnaise in another bowl.

  • Cut the fish into longish, fairly wide strips to look like fish fingers.

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.

  • Put all the fish in the mayonnaise bowl and mix until each piece is coated.

  • A few pieces at a time, put the coated fish into the breadcrumbs and and pat to ensure they are completely covered. Put them in a lined baking try, side by side. Do this for all the fish.

  • Put in the oven for around 40 minutes until the fish is golden brown.

  • Serve with homemade chips and steamed peas for a healthier take on the traditional English meal!
