Crumbed-fish-fillets-hare-tortoise-kitchen-recipe

Errrr, I can only assume that when the doctor ordered you to eat more fish, he wasn’t referring to the deep fried kind. lol. Here’s a great little recipe which requires only a little more effort than going to the local fish n chip shop.

This recipe takes the humble fish finger and elevates it to legendary status. Where possible, try to buy the freshest fish possible. If you don’t have a reliable fish monger, then definitely go for the frozen variety.

Even though these fish fingers are baked, rather than fried, they are delicious!!

What you will need: 

250 grams of white fish sliced

1 cup panko break crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 cup finely chopped parsley

1 beaten egg

1 cup plain flour

Salt & Pepper to season

1/2 lemon juice

Shaving of parmesan
