Who said fish fingers were just for kids? This version uses salmon rather than the traditional cod and polenta crumbs rather than breadcrumbs to make them gluten free.

Kids and adults will love them. I served mine with my Lemon and Chilli stir fry sauce recipe poured over some sweet potato and buckwheat noodles.




  • 500g salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons polenta
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • olive oil, for shallow frying
