Instructions

To Start
1

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Pat the basa with kitchen paper to remove any excess moisture. Slice each basa fillet lengthways into 2cm wide strips and season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.

c) Crack the egg (see pantry for amount) into a medium bowl and whisk.

d) Put the breadcrumbs into another bowl, then season with salt (see pantry for amount) and pepper.

Bake the Fish Fingers
2

a) Dip each piece of fish into the egg, then into the breadcrumbs, ensuring they're completely coated.

b) Transfer to a lined baking tray. 

c) Drizzle the fish fingers with a little oil, then bake on the middle shelf until the fish is cooked, 15-18 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the centre.

Make the Tartare Sauce
3

a) While the fish bakes, zest and quarter the lemon. Finely chop the parsley (stalks and all). Finely chop the capers.

b) In a small bowl, combine a pinch of lemon zest, the capers, mayonnaise and three quarters of the parsley. Season with salt and pepper, then squeeze in lemon juice to taste. This is your tartare sauce!

c) Once baked, add your fish fingers to a serving dish and sprinkle over the the remaining parsley.

d) Serve the tartare sauce on the side for dipping. Squeeze over any remaining lemon if you'd like.
