Fish Fingers

ingredients: Cod (64%), Wheat Flour, Yeast, Salt, Spice, Colours, Paprika Extract, Curcumin, Water, Potato Starch, Wheat Starch, Salt, Mustard Powder, Pepper Extract, Vegetable Oil

ingredients: Salmon, Organic Egg, Bread, Olive Oil


cook salmon in microwave for 2 mins.

remove skin from salmon.

cut into fingers.

break egg into bowl and beat it.

put a piece of organic homemade bread (smug) in coffee grinder. push button for 20 seconds, turn breadcrumbs onto plate.

dip salmon in egg then bread.

fry in olive oil for 5 mins.

serve to child.

watch child reject it.

child prefers "real" fish fingers.

Sadly, salmon was farmed, but waitrose farmed, and waitrose reckon their farmed stuff is nice and ethical.

Bread was not organic and homemade, it is cheap, motorway service station bread, so this product probably contains just as many chemicals and e numbers as the processed one, but I MADE IT and it was fun and felt like one in the eye for "them" and "their reigime". Is this the form my midlife crisis is to take?
