Healthy fish fingers with guacamole recipe
These delicious fish fingers are baked and not fried and kids DO love those golden crunchy crumbs. Here we serve them with a yummy side of guacamole that is so simple the kids could even make it.
- 1 cup wholemeal breadcrumbs
- zest of one lemon
- a little salt
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 salmon fillets (about 200g each)
- canola oil spray
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels
- 1/2 red capsicum, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- juice of one lemon
- splash olive oil
Preheat the oven to 200°C conventional (180°C fan-forced) and line a biscuit tray with baking paper.
To make the crumb mix, combine the breadcrumbs with the lemon zest and salt and place in a shallow bowl. Slice the salmon fillets into ‘fingers’ and dip these first in the beaten egg and then in the crumb mixture, turning so each side is well coated.
Place on the prepared baking tray and once all the fish is crumbed, lightly spray with canola oil and place in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile to make the guacamole, crush the avocado into a bowl and mix with remaining ingredients. Season to taste.
- You could add some chilli flakes and coriander to the guacamole but kids aren’t generally fond of either so you might leave these on the side.
- You could add herbs to the crumb mix and even swap the fish for chicken strips.
- This recipe serves two little people and one hovering, hungry adult.
