Easy and delicious fish fingers recipe

Posted in Recipes.

Fish fingers is usually a successful way to introduce kids to fish – that crunchy exterior gets them over the line ever so easily – and it’s so simple to make your own using just a handful of ingredients.

Know exactly what every bite of a fish finger contains by making your own. Great value for money (you get a lot more than what you’d get in a box, plus the taste is awesome!) simply choose a firm white fish and you’re on your way. You can even do as I did and choose fillets from the freezer section of the supermarket. Too easy!

Easy and delicious fish fingers ingredients

  • 600g Blue grenadier fresh or frozen fillets, defrosted
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g fresh breadcrumbs
  • ½ tbs sweet paprika
  • 6 tbs plain flour
  • alt and pepper
  • oil for shallow frying


  • Mix together the flour and paprika in a large bowl. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly beat the two eggs. In a third bowl, have your breadcrumbs at the ready.
  • Set them up in a line so you dip each piece of fish in the flour, the egg and then a gentle roll in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat a glug of oil in a non stick pan over medium heat and add the fish pieces. Cook each side until golden brown. Don’t over crowd the pan, instead cook in two batches.
  • Let the fish rest on a bed of paper towel for a minute to drain any excess oil away.


  • Serve warm with vegetables or salad – and don’t forget sauce or mayonnaise to dip. Yum!
