I made and photographed this recipe so long ago – it was during all the warm weather we had at the start of the summer as I remember eating these in the garden late one night.  As with most of my recipes you can easily adjust this to suit you – I used thick cut cod to make the fish fingers but salmon also works well if you fancy a change.

If you like the idea but don’t have the time to prep the coleslaw and fish fingers you can easily pick up gluten and dairy free versions of these in the supermarket for a quick dinner idea.  I know you are always interested in recommendations for good gluten free bread.  I buy all mine from Wheat Free Bakery online – this is their sesame seed burger bun in the photograph.
