Posh Fish Fingers


  • 150g white fish
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 80g finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 115g fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp smoked or sweet paprika
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 85g plain flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 50ml oil if you are shallow-frying
  • 1 lemon to garnish

The Method

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

  1. Chop the parsley and put it in a bowl with the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan and paprika. Season and mix thoroughly.
  2. Whisk the egg in another bowl.
  3. Sieve the flour into a third bowl.
  4. Cut the fish into your ‘fingers’ – 8cm long x 2cm wide should do it.
  5. Coat each finger in the flour, then dip it in the egg before coating it in the breadcrumb mix.
  6. Shallow-fry for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Or, oven bake on a non-stick tray at 210 °C / 410 °F for 7-10 minutes until golden brown.
