Crisp and Crunchy Salmon (Or Chicken) Fingers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by English_Rose

A little salmon goes a long way with this recipe and children will love these home-made fish fingers. Variation: Use chicken fillets in place of salmon and cook in the same way, but for longer, until the meat is thoroughly cooked and there is no pink meat. Serve with garlic mayonnaise.

How simple can this be? I loved this recipe!!! I did use it for chicken, only because the salmon at the store looked awful. The garlic butter is a must on this. I added sesame seeds into the breadcrumbs for a little more flavor. And a little parsley flakes for color. I cut the chicken in thin strips for fast cooking. I cooked it at 400 degrees for 7 minutes first side, then only 4 minutes on the other side. I also made up extra and froze them for easy meals another time. I can't wait to try it with salmon. Thanks English_Rose for this recipe!!
