These healthy fish fingers are a great homemade twist on a frozen family favourite. You can freeze the uncooked, coated healthy fish fingers and cook them from frozen. Simply add 5 mins to the cooking time. That way they are just as convenient as shop bought fish fingers but will taste heaps better and they are much healthier. Our salmon fish fingers are coated in oats, which are rich in a soluble fibre called beta glucan. Once eaten, this glucan forms a gel that helps bind cholesterol in the intestine and prevents it from being absorbed. This recipe is a fantastic way to increase your intake of oily fish and it is perfect for fussy eaters. We have served our healthy fish fingers with courgette but if you wanted to have a treat, try them served with chips and peas. It’s still healthier than takeaway fish and chips without compromising on flavour.
