Super easy to make and really healthy too, your kids are sure to love this recipe for Lemon & Herb Fish Fingers.
If there’s one meal my kids will never tire of eating it’s fish fingers. Getting any other type of fish into them is an epic battle but I could serve them fish fingers day in day out and I wouldn’t hear a complaint!
Pushed for time I sometimes do feed them the packaged frozen fish fingers but when I’ve got a little more time I make up a batch of my homemade Lemon & Herb Fish Fingers which they gobble down just as quick. The lemon taste is very subtle but if you are worried that you kids won’t like it, feel free to leave it out or just start with a very small amount.
These fish fingers can be made up in big batches and stored in the freezer. Once you have assembled them, simply freeze in a single layer on a plate or a tray, before transferring into a freezer bag or container for up to 2 months. They can then be cooked from frozen but will require an extra 5-8 minutes cooking time.
