Fish - fun and food!

If you have a toddler or preschooler you will probably know about Katy and 'I can cook.' There's a great fish in breadcrumbs recipe that I have taken inspiration from and we have made loads of times. Entertains the child and you get your dinner made!

What you need
  • Some white fish skinned and boned - I use pollack which is cheap and MCS certified (a packet)
  • Some breadcrumbs- if you have stale bread then great otherwise make some toast (I put into a chopper and grind up to make breadcrumbs) - about 4 slices
  • Ground polenta - 2 tablespoons
  • An egg - whisked
  • Plain flour - enough to lightly coat all your fish
  • Paprika (optional) - ½ teaspoon
  • Dried mixed herbs (optional)  - 1 teaspoon
  • Finely grated parmesan (optional) - 2 teaspoons
What to do
  1. Create your breadcrumbs, add the herbs and parmesan and polenta
  2. Add the paprika to the flour in a shallow bowl
  3. Cut the fish into fish finger shape sizes
  4. Dip the fish in the flour, then the egg then coat with breadcrumbs
  5. When all done put in the fridge for at least 15 mins to firm up
  6. Shallow fry until golden, then put the a warm oven until they have all gone through the shallow fry
  7. Serve with fresh and spuds (homemade chips, mash, boiled new potatoes, whatever) - freeze what you don't eat or have the following day in a picnic (like we intend to!).
