Posh Fish Finger Sandwich


posh fish finger sandwich-Honest Mum

My husband and kids love a posh fish finger sandwich here. The perfect fare for a lazy weekend brunch, one of these ciabatta hunks with a cup of Rooibos tea and the Sunday Times really makes my Mr happy.

Here’s how to make it:

Serves 2 adults

fish finger ciabatta sandwich


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 fish fingers
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp capers, drained and chopped
  • 1 gherkin, chipped
  • 1/2 lemon, zested
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Drop of tabasco
  • 1 white ciabatta loaf
  • butter for spreading
  • iceberg lettuce
  • Tomato, sliced


Preheat the oven to 200ºC, fan 180ºC, gas 6.

Drizzle oil on a tray and sit fish fingers on to cook following packet instructions or fry for speed.

Mix together the mayonnaise, capers, gherkin, lemon zest and tabasco. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the ciabatta in the oven until golden brown or fry on a low heat in a griddle pan.

Halve and butter. Layer the leaves and tomato adding the fish fingers on top then drizzle with tartare sauce.

    I’m not a big fan of any fish/seafood etc, but I have to admit…it does look great! Something I would definitely make for our children, they love Fish Fingers!
    I absolutely love Ciabatta’s they taste so yummy, so I do have these with different sandwich toppings a lot. They are yummy!
    Great post Vicki!! ?

    I love a good fish finger sandwich! Before I had children I was even known to order one in our local pub. These days I have them in the freezer though and they make a great easy lunch! The ones I make are never quite this posh though unfortunately. Maybe next time.

    And I thought it was just something we did in our home! Thanks for sharing your recipe. We are going to have to try this! Fish fingers is one of my daughter’s absolute favourites!

    I think it must be a traditional English meal as have never heard of fish finger sandwiches until hubby made us some for dinner, and have to agree, quite a simple and tasty meal! xxx
