Crunchy Fish Fingers - хрустящие рыбные палочки
A great recipe by Jools Oliver, famous British chef Jamie Oliver's wife and mother of four.
This is her trick to get her kids eating more fish at home. It always goes down well with them, and the secret is the crunchy topping - which is the bit they love the most!

Serves 2 Cooks in 20 minutes Difficulty: Super easy

2 x 120 g firm white fish or salmon fillets, scaled and pin-boned

Here's the text version of the cooking instructions:
This recipe is incredibly versatile – use whichever fish you like (as long as its sustainable) and add any herbs to the crumb. A fine grating of Parmesan makes a nice addition, too. It doesn’t matter if your bread is a bit stale, it’ll still work fine. And, if you haven’t got any bread you can use four smashed-up cream crackers instead.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 5. Tear the bread into a food processor, add 2 tablespoons of oil and grate in the zest of half a lemon. Pick in the thyme leaves (throw away the stalks), then add a grinding of black pepper. Whizz the mixture until nice and fine.
Place a non-stick ovenproof frying pan on a medium-high heat. While it’s heating up, check that there aren’t any stray bones lurking in the fish fillets, then rub them all over with a little oil. Place in the hot pan skin-side down. Squeeze some lemon juice over the top of each fillet, then pile most of the crumb on top, covering them evenly, then scatter the remaining crumb into the pan. Fry for 3 minutes (this will get the skin nice and crispy), then transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the crumb is golden and crunchy.
Carefully remove the pan from the oven using oven gloves, then transfer the fish to your plates using a fish slice. Serve scattered with the extra super-crispy crumbs, and a jacket potato or wedges, and broccoli or peas on the side.
