Recipe: salmon fingers

This was very nice indeed.  I used the flour paste and breadcrumb method (thanks again to Jamie) and the paste created a crunchy coating so that the salmon inside didn't dry out.

Ingredients to make enough for one
one salmon fillet
1 tsp plain flour mixed with water to make a coating paste - not too thick - and a bit of seasoning salt
breadcrumbs - I zizzed up one of my 1lb loaf slices and there was plenty left

Preheat oven to 200C

Cut the salmon across the short middle, removing the skin as well, if necessary, and then across long ways so you end up with four fingers
Dip each finger in the flour and water and then cover with breadcrumbs.  They stick really easily.

Place on a baking tray covered with parchment and sprayed with oil.  Spray a little more oil on top.
Bake in the oven for about 15 mins until the breadcrumbs are turning golden.

I served them with a salad and some Slimming World chips (but used the wrong kind of potatoes so they were nice but not really chips - shame).  You could also add a lemon wedge and some tartar sauce if you were feeling lavish.  I wasn't.

Definitely, definitely one to do again.  Also, I shall make my own fish fingers using this method and some cheaper white fish.  It was so tasty.


  1. It looks lovely, I think I'll be trying that flour water coating.

    1. It works really well. I can't understand why I hadn't heard of it before, especially when I was doing Pound a Day. I won't waste an egg again.

  2. They look lovely. Yes, I'll be trying the 'flour paste' too, what a lovely cheap replacement for egg when you're coating things ready for cooking.

    1. It's brilliant, isn't it? I'd never have thought of it by myself and it works a treat.
