Fish Goujons

Fish Goujons

The first of my recipe list is done, yay!  Yesterday I made fish fingers for Son No. 1 as Son No. 2 has declared himself a vegetarian.  I have to say, though that they were more like fish goujons but that’s ok if not actually better!

The goujons were so simple to make, it’s a wonder I hadn’t made them before.  I’d bought a cod loin on our latest trip to Howth, washed, dried and cut it into fat fingers.  I then dipped the fingers into beaten egg and then a mix of fresh breadcrumbs and grated parmesan seasoned with salt and pepper.  I would have included parsley but my parsley plant was dying and I’d run out of dried {no self respecting cook should ever be out of parsley but I was!}.

Heating some olive oil on the pan, I fried the goujons until a golden colour and cooked through.  This does not take long with such fresh fish but breadcrumbs sure like to soak up the oil!

The goujons were light and delicate with the fish cooked just perfectly. The better result was a clean plate, thank you very much; Son No. 1 loved the goujons!  Next time, I’ll definitely incorporate parsley and perhaps a little chilli to add some heat, not much as I don’t want to kill the delicate flavour of the fish.

Fish goujons are a winner and will be the only “fish fingers” in our house from now on!  Do give them a try!
