The Ultimate Fish Finger Roll

Feb 17, 2017 | Food, Recipes

I always try to keep a box of Birds Eye fish fingers in the freezer, finding they come in handy for quick lunches or the rare late night binge. I think the main choice of what to do with them is between a fish finger salad or a fish finger roll. I am open to hearing other suggestions though!

Captain Birdseyes

I  am glad the Birds Eye captain is back as some old chap. I like to imagine that this old sea-dog is constantly drunk on rum and wears a tatty uniform from 50 years ago. He is redeemed by knowing where to steal fish fingers from the Spanish, no doubt.  I for one am glad it reverted back to an old fella, away from those unhappy years in which the old stalwarts post was filled with some young, gurning muscle-man. A dream of mine is to be chosen as Captain Birds Eye, and get a lifetime supply of rum and fish-fingers.


Ultimate Fish Finger Sandwich

This 'recipe' is so god damn easy, a child could do it. This is about my level of gastronomy, with most other recipes supplied by my talented partner in crime, 'Her'.

  • 1 Baguette
  • 5 Fish Fingers
  • 3 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 20 g Butter
  • 1 tbsp Tartare sauce
  • 50 g Ricotta
  • 1 tbsp Capers


  • Put the fish fingers in the oven for 15 minutes till crisp
  • Cut the fresh bread in half
  • Butter the bread
  • Thinly slice the tomatoes and lay on one half of the roll
  • Spread the tartare sauce on the other side
  • Sprinkle the capers in the tartare to make it even more potent
  • Puts bits of ricotta through the tomatoes
  • Carefully place the fish fingers in two rows
  • Season to taste with plenty of black pepper

This could be much improved with greenery, like a peppery bit of rocket but never by fancier fish fingers (but where's the fun in that).
