  2. Meanwhile, put the beaten egg into a shallow bowl. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Mix the sweet smoked paprika into the breadcrumbs along with a little seasoning if you like.

  3. Brush a non-stick baking sheet with the remaining oil. Dip the fish strips into the egg, then coat them with the breadcrumbs. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake for 25 mins until golden.

You can open freeze the fish fingers on a baking tray, then once frozen transfer to a freezer bag. Cook from frozen at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 20 – 25 mins until crisp and cooked all the way through.

Absolutely brilliant recipe! I made just the fish fingers for my daughter. I pretended they were princess fish fingers as they are pink and make up a little story about a princess delivering them for her. She tried them and absolutely loved them! It is very rare for her to even try something new let alone like them so I would definitely give this recipe a try. Thanks very much!
