Fish Finger Sandwich
I did some research on the internet before writing this, my first post. There are quite a few blog posts out there on the subject of the fish finger sandwich, but frankly I was disgusted with what I read. Home-made fish fingers made from snapper/tilapia/monkfish, sourdough bread (or worse, 'artisan'), home-made tartare sauce, rocket... it's just not right.
If there's ever a dish where your Nigel Slater aspirations are inappropriate, it is the fish finger sandwich. And don't even think about prefixing it with the word "posh". Anyway, without further delay, here is my version.
Fry the fish fingers. I used Birdseye. Meanwhile, spread one slice of bread with ketchup and add a sliced gherkin.
When the fingers are almost cooked, add a slice of cheese and cook until melted. Then remove from the heat and quickly fry an egg.
Spread the top slice of bread with tartare sauce. Place the cheesey fish fingers on top of the gherkins, add the fried egg, and finish with the top slice of bread. Squish down until the yolk, tartare cause, and melted cheese all run into each other.
THAT, my friends, is a fish finger sandwich.
