Salmon Fingers

My daughters' adore fishfingers and these homemade salmon ones are no exception. The process of bread crumbing the fish takes 5 minutes and kids love to get involved so please don't shy away from giving these a go. I normally serve them with homemade fries and garden peas... (and a helping or two of ketchup) ! 


Feeds 2-4 children depending on age and appetite


200g salmon fillet, cut into 4 'fingers'

3  tbsp flour

1 egg, beaten

4 tbsp panko breadcrumbs

1 lemon, zest only

sea salt

freshly milled black pepper


Preheat the oven to 200oC and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Set aside.

Place the flour on a small plate and lightly season with the salt and pepper. Place the egg in a shallow open bowl and the breadcrumbs on another plate. Season the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and the zest of 1/2 lemon.

To coat: lightly coat the salmon 'finger' with the flour before placing each one into the egg and lightly coating. Remove and place in the breadcrumbs. Roll each finger until they are evenly coated and then place on the prepared baking tray. [Note: At this stage you can place in the fridge to cook later or cook straightaway]. 

When ready to cook place in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
