Ultimate fish finger sandwich

The method

  1. Cut the fish into pieces around 8cm and 3cm wide.
  2. Put the flour in a shallow bowl and season with black pepper. Put the eggs in another shallow bowl. Mix the parmesan and breadcrumbs together in a third shallow bowl.
  3. Dip the fish pieces into the flour, then the egg and then the breadcrumb mixture, shaking off the excess as you go.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the fish fingers for around 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through (the amount of time will depend on the thickness of the fish!).
  5. Lightly toast the ciabatta slices, then spread each with the tartare sauce. Top 4 slices of the ciabatta with the tomatoes, lettuce and fish fingers, finished with the remaining slice of ciabatta, sauce side down. Serve with gherkins and ketchup on the side.


Have a go at making your own tartare sauce by mixing light mayonnaise with a little Dijon mustard, lemon juice, chopped parsely, capers and chopped gherkins.
