Fish fingers

Thanks to the busy holiday season we were a little more unhealthy than we might usually be. In fact I still have some ready made pizzas in the fridge that hubby and I were eating for a quick and easy lunch. One of the unhealthiest things we gave Mr B was some fish fingers. Now don’t get me wrong if you buy ready made fish fingers I’m not judging, but for us the amount of wheat and salt or the type of acidity regulators in the ingredients just don’t sit right with me when it comes to our little man’s maturing gut.

Anyway, so since he just loved eating fish in any form I thought I would try make my own fish fingers.

Recipe:
(This recipe depends on how much fish you have so just keep adding more of each ingredient as you need it)
Coconut flour
eggs (beaten)
Desiccated coconut
White fish (we used Hoki)

Set up the ingredients in their own dishes and cut the fish into strips.
Dip the fish strips into the flour first (coating the whole piece at each stage), then the egg and finally the coconut.
Fry immediately in a medium pan with oil of your choice. For this recipe I would suggest coconut oil but olive will do too.
Let them cool before serving, we also checked each piece for bones when we were cutting them into strips.
We served this with homemade potato and sweet potato chips coated in rosemary.

Rice Pasta with Bolognese sauce.

One of our definite go-to meals is Spag-Bol. My husband loves it, it’s easy to make and it’s fun and messy for Mr B.

Obviously you can just make this however you like, but here is our recipe for those of you who want it 🙂

Bolognese:

1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
590g mince
1cup of peas and sweetcorn
1cup courgettes
1cup mushrooms
1can diced tomatoes
1tsp rosemary

Dice up your onion and garlic and fry it with the rosemary till cooked through.
Add your mince and brown it.
Add all your veggies and the can of tomatoes and simmer until they are all cooked through.

Serve on a bed of rice pasta. We only use rice pasta in our home because we are trying to eliminate any gluten based products from our diet but of course any pasta will do.
