Homemade fish fingers

After Alicia showed signs of getting sick of her usual baked cod, I decided to add something new to her menu – something which my hubby has been stopping me from adding since a long time ago: breaded cod. 😛 He’s always saying that it’s too heaty etc. and since she was very young back then, I also thought it wise to keep fried food to a minimum. Now that she’s reached the 30months mark this month, I felt that it was time. 🙂

I didn’t photograph the homemade fish fingers, but here’s Alicia eating it on one occasion (scroll down for recipe):

Getting ready to eat! AHHHHH!!


Picking the crumbs to eat first…

Posing with her fish finger 🙂
Homemade fish finger 
Homemade fish finger(s)
  • 1 slice of cod (about 60g)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • breadcrumbs (probably about 2 tbsp - I didn't measure)
  • a teeny weeny pinch of salt
  • a little ground white pepper
  • cornflour
  • oil
  1. Mix the breadcrumbs with the salt and pepper evenly.
  2. Place the slice of cod into the beaten egg, then coat it with cornflour.
  3. Return the cod into the egg then coat it with breadcrumbs.
  4. Add some oil into a non-stick pan and shallow fry the fish finger till golden brown before turning over to brown the other side.
  5. Place the fish on a sheet of kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.
  6. Let it cool before serving to prevent burns.
  7. (You can fry an omelette for yourself/ your tot with the remaining egg.)
You can repeat the breading process for more fish fingers before frying them.

1 beaten egg can be used to coat 8-10 fish fingers.
