A great starter to drool over and love to have this with Mayonnaise. Since it is one of my personal favourite I have come up with a recipe of fish fingers. The recipe is very simple, no fancy technique or ingredients required to make this and can be easily made with ingredients easily available in your kitchen.
Please do try and let me know how it turned out for you. Would love to have your feedback 😀
