Oven Baked Fish Fingers! Kids and adults alike love these oven-baked Fish Fingers. A much healthier alternative to deep-fried fish with all the delicious flavor and crunch! Plus, these go so well with my home-made tartar sauce which is so much better than store-bought and just as quick to make as opening up a jar!

Nicks favourite thing…

I absolutely adore how light these are! When I’m looking for an easy and quick dinner option on a weekend or weeknight these do just the trick! They’re filling, but with none of the greasy after taste of deep-fried food. Although there’s a time and place for that! Serve these with my delicious tartar sauce. It’s way yummier than store bought and quicker to make than opening up a jar lid!

What do these fish fingers taste like?

These fish fingers are full of flavour! Crispy panko bread crumb coating with paprika and salt. Sprinkled with more salt once baked! So delicious! Best served with my home-made tartare sauce!

What are the ingredients I need to make Oven Bake Fish Fingers?

Ingredients image for Oven Baked Fish Fingers

Panko bread crumbs – are a Japanese bread crumb that have a crispy texture especially when baked. But you can regular day old breadcrumbs if you wish!

Oil spray – regular vegetable oil spray is best

All-purpose flour – also known as plain flour

Salt – I used fine salt for the coating but sea salt flakes once the fish fingers were baked.

Paprika – I used powder paprika. You can also add a little garlic powder in there too!

Large fillets of skinless and boneless fish – The fish I used was Ling fillets. But Fresh Water Basa will work. I’ve even used chicken tenders!

Mayonnaise – regular whole egg mayonnaise is best.

Egg – I used a large egg

Dill – finely chopped. This is optional. Chives or parsley will also work.
