  • Mayo
  • Gherkins
  • Capers
  • Lemon
  • Mushy Peas
  • Parsley

Sunday is a day that I automatically just go for brunch and eat out somewhere enjoying the Sunday papers. When I woke up today though I had a bad dose of the flu and all I could do was make it down to the local shop. Much like having a hangover. I still wanted to eat something tasty though and had a fish finger buttie in mind. Much like the one in Rigbys or Super Miss Sue but home made. The great news is that this version not only tastes absolutely fucking gorgeous but also is ready in less than 10 minutes and will kill any hangover in a matter of minutes. Go on give it a lash…


Step 1

The ingredients are mega simple and chances are you might even have half of them in the cupboard, freezer and pantry already.


Step 2

Chop the shit out of the gherkins and capers until they are really small.


Step 3

Lash them into a bowl with a small amount of mayo and a good big squeeze of lemon juice.


Step 4

Chop up a good handful of parsley into a fine dice. Might not seem like the most important ingredient but trust me it gives it a lovely even balance.


Step 5

Stir that into the sauce. You want it thicker rather than really watery


Step 6

One key difference between restaurants and home cooks is seasoning. Lash in a good bit of black pepper and salt into your sauce. This will make all the difference


Step 7

Lash on a frying pan over a medium heat and fuck in some oil.


Step 8

You can do your fish fingers in the oven or under the grill but I prefer them in a pan. Gets them nice and crispy and golden brown.


Step 9

Mushy peas aren’t for everybody but I love them in this recipe. Lash them into a small pot and heat them up. Even a student could do this in fairness.


Step 10

The cooking part of this is going to take about 5 minutes tops. All you are really doing is heating stuff up. Not rocket science.


Step 11

Cut the bread. You want really big huge slices. There is going to be a lot of sauce and the wet peas in there so the bread needs to be strong enough to hold it all together.


Step 12

Cut the bread. You want really big huge slices. There is going to be a lot of sauce and the wet peas in there so the bread needs to be strong enough to hold it all together.


Step 13

Smear the sauce onto the bread. Don’t be shy with it.


Step 14

When the fish fingers are golden brown and the peas are piping hot with the liquid steamed off whip them off the heat.


Step 15

Fuck the peas straight onto the bread. Use a slotted spoon so as you are only getting the flesh and not the watery parts.


Step 16

Lash the fish fingers on next.


Step 17

Another dip dollop of peas and a good squeeze of the other half of the lemon and we are nearly there.


Step 18

Pop the other half of bread on top and there you have it. Quickest, tastiest sandwich you are ever likely to have!

I cook a lot of shit on here and tend to be full of a little bit of hyperbole but when I sat down to eat this myself I was actually surprised at just how good it was. Possibly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. This is a weekend dish, one that fills you full of comfort and warms the heart. I licked the plate clean and am already planning on making another one tomorrow evening. A new “Go to” epic dish. Savage!
