Even kids who hate fish will devour these fish fingers!!
Having grown up eating fish 3 or 4 times a week my mom needed to be creative feeding 8 kids!! This is not one of my mom's recipes but she'd love it!!
I remember as a kid my mom giving me a quarter and telling me to go get fish for supper as the fishing boats were in....we'd all run and buy the biggest cod fish we could carry and we'd take it home while it was still squirming!!
My mom would cut that fish up quicker than anything and we'd have fresh fish for supper!!
You'd never get a fish like that these days that's for sure!!
Sweet Potato Oven-Fries: Peel potatoes. Cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; cut each lengthwise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) wide strips. Cut to about 3 inches (8 cm) long.
In large bowl, whisk egg white until frothy; whisk in oil, salt and pepper. Add potatoes, tossing to coat. Bake on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet in 450°F (230°C) oven, turning once, for about 30 minutes or until tender and edges are browned and crisp.
Meanwhile, cut fish into 3- x 1-1/2-inch (8 x 4 cm) fingers; place in large bowl. Add mayonnaise; toss to coat. In shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, parsley and Cajun seasoning; dip fish into bread crumb mixture, turning to coat.
Bake on greased rimmed baking sheet, turning once, for about 15 minutes or until dark golden and fish flakes easily when tested. Serve with sweet potato fries.
