Breaded fillet fish fingers

fish fingers

You’ll be amazed at how quick it is to make home made fish fingers and how the children will gobble up these tasty fillets.  I usually buy double the amount of ingredients and freeze a batch so that next time I serve the fish fingers, there’s no preparation involved. It’s like buying convenience but better.
