These easy Homemade Salmon Fish Fingers can be enjoyed as a main dish or party food idea. They come with a zesty yogurt lime dip with chives and dill.
My last post was about making and storing breadcrumbs and today I am posting a recipe that uses them. Homemade Salmon Fish Fingers with Yogurt Dip. I have to admit that I never thought of putting salmon and breadcrumbs in the same recipe. Until now. Salmon fillet seems so perfect baked whole, it never occurred to me to cut it into pieces.
I can tell you though that turning salmon into crispy salmon fish fingers (served alongside a tangy zesty yogurt dip) was a great idea! Shame I hadn’t thought of it sooner.
Homemade fish fingers with easy yogurt dip
This homemade fish fingers recipe is a delicious easy meal idea but it also makes great party food – perfect for the holiday season. It comes with a zesty, low fat yogurt dip that’s super simple and quick to prepare! I’ve used the two herbs that I think work really well with any salmon recipe – dill and chives. (I like both but you could use either one or the other). You could spice up the dip with some cayenne pepper or even sprinkle some on the salmon slices before coating them with the breadcrumbs. I made mine mild to make them 100% child friendly. (My children have unanimously declared these fish fingers to be their favourite salmon recipe!).
If you use coarser breadcrumbs your fish fingers will be more crispy but will absorb more oil than when using finer breadcrumbs. You might like to read my post on How To Make Your Own Breadcrumbs. You can also use panko, Japanese style breadcrumbs, which produce a light crispy coating.
