What are fish sticks made of?

Fish sticks, or fish fingers, are a typical English ingredient that most kids love. They are fingers of white fish like cod, haddock, pollock or hake, which have been breaded and frozen. You can cook them in the oven, or by grilling or (air-) frying them.

Though the oven or grill method is easier I prefer to fry the fish fingers in butter as I think it makes them taste better. We always have a packet in the freezer and I will often cook them if the fridge is empty and serve up simply with white rice and ketchup. This remains one of my favourite easy meals.

Who invented the fish finger sandwich?

Well, this credit probably goes to the McDonald’s chain of restaurants who created the trademarked ‘Filet-O-Fish’ back in 1962, to compensate for lower sales on Friday, fish day. The filet-O-fish is more of a fish sandwich roll, but I imagine the idea of the fish finger sandwich caught on from there.

These days they even have fish finger sandwich awards, and some restaurants even put them on the menu. And I must say, it is something I might be tempted to try in a restaurant, as it is real comfort food and there are so many possible variations.

What to put in fish finger sandwich?

This is another great thing about this meal. You can invent your own fillings to suit your preferences. In this sandwich, I experimented by using a combination of tastes, and I must say I was very happy with the result.

I used some mayonnaise mixed with a bit of English mustard on one slice of bread and on the other, I used tartar sauce with some tomato ketchup. Tomato ketchup goes so well with fish sticks, so I added some more 🙂

On top of the spread sauce, I placed the lettuce on one side and the thin slices of cheese and fish sticks on the other. Put them together and the masterpiece was complete. If you were not too worried about calories you could always add some thicker cheese slices I suppose. Fish stick with cheese is also a great combination.

You could also experiment with brown sauce, lemon juice, Marie Rose sauce or countless other condiments to make your own perfect posh fish finger sandwich. See what you can come up with!

How many fish fingers in a sandwich?

I only put 4 fish fingers into this sandwich due to the size of the bread slices, but you could always stack them, if you are really hungry. But to be fair, this amount filled the hole.
