I got very excited last month when Holly from Recipes From A Normal Mum released her first cookbook. I love Holly’s recipes as they are always quick, easy and kid-friendly…perfect for my house full of fussy eaters!
I’ve earmarked so many recipes that I want to try and the first up were these Rice Cake Fish Fingers. My little fussy eater loves the packaged fish fingers and I sometimes make my own but with breadcrumbs. I was really intrigued by Holly’s idea to use rice cakes instead and was very keen to give it a go.
I have to say I was really impressed by these. The rice cakes made a fantastic coating for the fish. They were super crispy and also worked as a flavouring too. Holly recommends the cheese flavour rice cakes in her book but my local shop only had salt and vinegar so I used those.
- 1 fillet of white wish
- 26g rice cakes (1 packet), crushed
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 1 large egg, beaten
- Preheat the oven to 180c and line a baking sheet with parchment.
- Cut the fish into bite sized pieces.
- Set up an assembly line of three plates; one with the flour, one with the beaten egg and one with the crushed rice cakes.
- Taking one piece of fish at a time, coat it in flour, dip it in the egg and roll in the crushed rice cakes. Place it on the baking sheet and repeat for each fish finger.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
