Lifestyle Chatter: Fishfinger Sandwiches for Grown Ups

Before I go any further, I have to declare that this is not my original recipe. I found it years ago on the internet, made it once, and it  thankfully stuck in my head as I’ve never been able to find it since. The original post was written by a very witty guy  who described it, I think, as “the greatest fishfinger sandwich known to man”. Or something like that!


Anyway, Pete and I LOVE this recipe. It’s quick, easy and totally adaptable so you can add whatever you like, anything goes.


Ingredients – for 2 people

  • 10 fishfingers
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • mayonnaise
  • pepper
  • A baguette


Gently fry the fishfingers in a little olive oil until almost cooked. This should take no more than a few minutes, turning occasionally

Add the lemon juice and a generous quantity of mayonnaise and mix, finishing with some pepper

IMG_20150903_150855Cut the ends off your baguette and cut it in half, before slicing each piece lengthways. Butter the halves then spread the fishfinger mixture liberally onto each piece of baguette, making an open fishfinger sandwich. Obviousy you can serve with whatever you like but they are ridiculously dense and filling so we never manage anything else.
