Homemade Fish Fingers for Babies and Toddlers

This had been something I'd been meaning to do for a while and never got round to.  Ok, these are perhaps more "fish nuggets" than "fish fingers" or "fish sticks" but they were tasty.

Homemade Fish Nuggets for Babies and Toddlers - serves 1-2 depending on age and appetite.  Ok for older babies on finger foods (the crust is a little crunchy)


100g Fillet of pollock or other white fish
50g Naan bread (or other bread of your choice, see method below)
1 tbsp coriander leaf (cilantro)
1 egg
Spray oil


Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400F

Defrost the white fish if frozen.  I always use pollock for my son as it's a source of Omega 3 "good" fats which are essential for growth.  It's not a huge source of them but better for your health and the environment than having cod or haddock and an easier sell for kids than mackerel.

Cut the fish into two pieces.

Take the naan bread or other bread and make into bread crumbs.  The only reason I used naan bread was we'd run out of normal bread in the house but with the nigella seeds in it, naturally I immediately jumped to using some coriander as well.  If you don't have naan bread in the house, just use another bread.  As you're processing it into breadcrumbs, add in the coriander to get it all chopped up too.

Dip each piece of fish in beaten egg then dip into the breadcrumbs.  Put onto a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper.  Spray on the top with spray oil and put into the oven.

Cook for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.  Could be served with a sauce for dipping if liked.
