Fish Fingers

Here’s a quick, simple and easy appetiser recipe. This is another one of my earlier posts which I recently revisited. I got this recipe from my friend Divya. I dont know why I took this long to update the post with better pictures.

It’s an absolute breeze to make this dish. It’s packed with flavours and super easy to make. It’s a good dish to make while entertaining and you can make it ahead too.

If your kids like store bought nuggets and the likes, I’m sure this will be a hit with them too.

Notes

You can use any fish fillet for this recipe. I used frozen white fish fillet. Since it’s boneless, kids can also eat it. You can prepare this 1-2 days ahead and store in refrigerator and fry this just before serving.

  • As per my knowledge tartar sauce is better than tomato / chilli sauce.Dont you think soysauce is better than tamato sauce in ingredients ?

  • Thanks sooooo much Maria…. I had never been able to get my son to eat fish…. I made these using salmon, and he eats them so peacefully!!! Am so elated…. Thanks so much to you…
