Breaded Fish Fingers with Sweet Potato Oven-Fries

Doreen Fish Recipe

By Doreen Fish dfish


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!!

GREAT recipe for Catfish. In Mississippi, we eat Catfish about 2 times a week. (keeps me out of trouble by catching them fresh in local ponds).

Looking for a lower calorie oven fried catfish and ran across your recipe. Love the way i sounds and I'm wild about sweet potatoes, so it was a no brianer. Plan on having tonight. Also, loved the story of your childhood. Those were the "good" old days! LOL!

I'm going to try this recipe and make some tweaks, I don't have any cajun seasoning, I will have to go searching and see what I can add.
