F is for Fish Fingers for The Kids Cook Monday

 F is for Fish Fingers

Fish is such a good food to include in your child’s diet.  One of my daughters’ favourite ways to eat fish at the moment is fish fingers. They both request them a number of times during the week for lunch and dinner. Not that we have them that often.

The Kids Cook Monday

To take advantage of this new found liking, I decided to get Bear and Bee to help me make Homemade Fish Fingers for dinner. I prefer to shallow fry the fish fingers in a small amount of canola oil to make them super crispy on the outside but if you would like a healthier option I would suggest spraying them with olive oil spray and baking in the oven at 180oC for 15 minutes.

8. Remove the fish fingers when cooked and place on a tray lined with paper towel.  Keep warm.
9.Add a little extra oil to the pan, if necessary, and repeat steps 7 and 8 with the remaining fish fingers
