Fish Fingers

You might remember Harry was having a bit of a ‘moment’ with fish? Well that moment has passed thanks to these crispy little fish fingers. Store bought fish fingers are, ahem, so full of crap-ola, gulp, so these really are the perfect compromise – and they take seriously 5 minutes to make.

I used some fresh skinless and boneless flathead – you can use any low mercury fish that’s in season.

Nutrition Note: Infants and young children under the age of six are particularly vulnerable to the effects of mercury.  Salmon, canned tuna and shellfish are good examples of fish that contain lower levels of mercury.

  • 1 small fish filet, sliced into fingers (be very thorough when checking for bones)
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 3 tbs breadcrumbs
  • Lemon thyme, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbs olive oil, to lightly fry


Step 1

Cut fish into bite sized fingers. Dip each fish piece in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Set aside and continue with all fish pieces. -

Step 2

Heat oil in a small frypan over medium. Fry the fish for a few minutes either side. Remove from the pan and blot on paper towel. Alternatively you can bake these in a moderate oven for about 10 minutes. -

    My ten month old loved these!!!!! I used frozen bassa fillets, cut up and coated whilst still partially frozen earlier in the day. Popped them in the fridge and put in the oven just before dinner. Will definitely do again!

      Did you just do them for 10 mins in the oven? Bought some today so keen to try 😉
