Fish fingers, known as fish sticks in North America are processed food made using a whitefish. Traditional homemade fish fingers are the perfect food for the kids.
Plain flour 3 tbsp
Fillets of white fish, partially thawed 400 gm
Breadcrumbs 120 gm
Grated parmesan cheese 2 tbsp
Beaten egg, 1
Vegetable oil 100 ml
Freshly ground pepper and salt as taste
Pour the beaten egg into a shallow dish. Put the breadcrumbs (or breadcrumb and polenta mixture) in a separate shallow dish. Put the flour in a strong freezer bag and season with salt and black pepper and oregano.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Toss each piece of fish in the seasoned flour bag until evenly coated.
Dip into the beaten egg then the breadcrumbs until evenly coated. Put the prepared fish pieces on a plate.
When the oil became hot dip the fish fingers carefully and fry for 5–6 minutes turning occasionally until golden brown and crisp on all side.
Remove the fish from oil and drain on kitchen paper. Serve the fish fingers with slices of freshly buttered bread and lots of ketchup on the side or some salad.
Tips: You can garnish the fish fingers with red chili flacks. You can also serve with french fries.
