Fish fingers are a great way to get kids to eat fish. The crispy coating oozes kid appeal and adding a dip further heightens its attraction. Commercially bought fish fingers may be a quick and easy option but making your own not only tastes better, it allows you to know exactly what you are eating and provides a great opportunity to get your kids in the kitchen.
Cooking with kids isn’t always easy and it is often simpler just to cook alone. However, I do feel that it is such an important part of encouraging and developing adventurous and heathy eating habits. I love recipes, like these fish fingers, that involve dipping and coating. I can give both boys a job and it actually helps me out. With one boy coating in flour, the other dipping in egg it means I can dip in the breadcrumbs without having clumps of the mixture on my fingers! If your kids love helping with this kind of task too, then check out my Coconut Chicken Tenders or Bubble and Squeak Cakes which both have similar processes.
