Fish Fingers

fingers 3

Masarap ang chicken fingers. I know,  pero sorry po, hindi mahilig ang ate Ella ‘nyo sa manok. It will take a lot of cajoling from Tatay and Ana bago ako humawak ng hilaw na manok sa kusina.

But no worries,  I know how to cook a lot of chicken dishes.  I can even dress the fowl, naks. Nag-iinarte lang ako kapag ako ang maglilinis sa kanya. Hindi kasi ako kumakain ng manok, eh.

Puwera na lang kung nag-transform na siya bilang chicken at nag-ibang anyo na hehe . As in nuggets na siya or chicken popcorn 😉

Kaya eto, imbes na chicken fingers, fish fingers ang recipe natin ngayon. But you can substitute chicken tenders (fillet) sa fish. Pareho din naman ang procedure.

For this recipe, I used Cream Dory fillet (Fresh Catch brand). Meron nito sa mga supermarkets. I like working with this fish kasi wala siyang kalansa-lansa. Akshuli wala rin siyang lasa haha😆

We will need:

1 kilo fish fillet (kung anong type ‘nyong isda basta walang tinik)

bread crumbs

1 egg  beaten

1/2 cup milk

flour for dredging

4-5 pcs calamansi

2 tbsps mustard

dried basil (bottled spice)

1/2  tsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

cream dory

Fresh Catch Cream Dory. Two fillets to a kilo

bread crumbs

You can find this bread crumbs (used in tempura) in the bread section or baking section of supermarkets

fillet

Season  fish with salt and pepper. Squeeze calamansi juice. Use one calamansi for each side of  fillet.  Spread the mustard evenly. Add a dash of basil on both sides. Marinate for 15 minutes.

slice

Cut the fillets into 2-3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide pieces

flour egg

Add milk to beaten egg. Dredge fish slices in flour, dip in egg-milk mix, then roll in bread crumbs.

breading

Deep fry in medium heat until crisp and golden brown. Place the fish fingers in paper towels after frying to absorb the excess oil.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Mayo, thousand Island or ranch, white sauce, aioli sauce, sweet and sour sauce or sweet chili sauce. I buy Jufran sweet chili sauce. Masarap siya.
