Crispy Fish Fingers

What You’ll Need:

  • 500 grams of skinless and boneless White Fish Fillet, cut into finger sized strips (Pollock and Haddock are good options, salt it 20 minutes before you begin cooking)

Step 2: Set up a production line of three bowls containing flour, egg and breadcrumbs, respectively.Place a large plate at the end of the line for the kids to put the uncooked fish fingers.
Step 3: Show the kids how to dip a the strip of fish into the flour (shaking off any excess flour) and into the the egg wash. Then, show them how to roll it in the breadcrumbs so it’s completely coated before placing it on the plate.
Step 4: While they are doing this, you can start pan frying the fish fingers (3-4 minutes on each side). Finish the crispy fish fingers with butter.
