Homemade Cornflake Fish Fingers with the 'mmm' factor

These golden fingers are all the brighter and crisper here for their coating of cornflakes. The Parmesan should replace the need for salt.



  • pollack or haddock fillet 600g, skinned
  • finely grated parmesan cheese 2 tbsp
  • Plain flour 2 tbsp
  • Eggs 2, beaten
  • crushed cornflakes 70g
  • vegetable or sunflower oil for frying


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 110°C/gas ¼. Cut the fish into strips about  x2cm. Mix the Parmesan with the flour and turn the fish in it. Dip into the beaten egg, and then turn in the cornflakes till coated. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.  Fry the fish fingers, in batches if necessary, until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes altogether, making sure not to pack the pan too tightly.

  • Step 2

    Keep extra cooked fish fingers warm in the oven on a plate with some foil over them if you are doing them in batches. Serve with peas and rustic chips or in buttered bread, and some ketchup on the side.
