Fish Fingers Recipe

The boys love fish fingers, so I figured I should make my own. It’s safe to say I won’t be buying any more ready made ones in the future. These are too amazing!

The crispy crunch of the cornflakes makes these fish fingers taste extra special and they’re even grown up enough for the adults to enjoy too! Just squeeze over some lemon and serve with tartare sauce.

You can freeze these too, simply prepare them all and lay flat on a tray, separated from each other. Place in the freezer until solid. You can then store them in a sealed bag for up to 3 months.

  2. Fish fingers were one of my favourites when growing up and every now and again I buy them for a bit of nostalgia. But these look so much tastier and a bit more grown up 🙂
