Difficulty Easy

Little ones can help dip the fish in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.


  • 500g sustainable white fish fillets, e.g. cod, skinned
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 100g panko or dried natural breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Cut the fish into 12 2 x 8cm long strips and set aside.
  • Place the flour on a plate and the beaten egg into a shallow bowl.
  • Mix together the breadcrumbs, parsley, Parmesan, butter and salt in another bowl.
  • Take the strips and dip first into the flour and shake off the excess, then dip into the egg letting any excess drip off.
  • Then finally gently roll in the breadcrumbs.
  • Place the crumbed fingers onto the lined tray.
  • Bake for 12–15 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through.
  • Serve with sweet potato chips, peas and tartare sauce.
Panko is surprisingly delicious
