Cooking Method For Fish Finger Sandwich

Cut the fish into pieces around 8cm and 3cm wide. We suggest a selection of different fish such as plaice, haddock, cod and  pollock.

Put the flour in a shallow bowl and season with black pepper. Put the eggs in another shallow bowl. Mix the Parmesan and panko breadcrumbs together in a third shallow bowl.

Dip the fish pieces into the flour, then the egg and then the breadcrumb mixture, shaking off the excess as you go.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the fish fingers for around 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through (the amount of time will depend on the thickness of the fish!).

Lightly toast the ciabatta slices, then spread each with the tartare sauce. Top 4 slices of the ciabatta with the tomatoes, lettuce and fish fingers, finished with the remaining slice of ciabatta, sauce side down.

Serve with gherkins and ketchup on the side.
