Healthy kids recipes - easy fish cake fingers

Healthy kids recipes - easy fish cake fingers

I call these fish cake fingers because they are fish cakes shaped into fingers. Your children will love to make these with you although be prepared for a bit of a mess. Of course you can shape them into any shape you wish. They are a meal in one and always a winner when we have little guests for tea.


3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
300g fish, skinned and boneless
½ mug of peas
¼ pint of milk
1 bay leaf
1 egg, beaten
½ mug of breadcrumbs
Pepper to taste

  1. Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes until soft and allow to cool
  2. Poach the fish in the milk with a bay leaf for 5 minutes, remove and leave to cool
  3. Simmer the peas for 5 minutes, remove and leave to cool
  4. Pass the potatoes through a ricer or just mash and place all ingredients in the fridge for 30 minutes
  5. Once cooled, mix all the ingredients together and then shape into cakes or fingers, coat in the egg and then breadcrumbs and fry in a little oil until crisp. For the healthy option, place on a baking tray and bake in an oven 180C/Gas Mark 5 for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are crisp.
Serve with a salad or freshly steamed broccoli.
