I have to be honest, these are not a favourite with everyone in my house although me and my daughter love them. I don’t serve fish as much as I’d like to so getting my kids to enjoy it has been slow. Recently I served them as burgers as my kids love burgers.

You can make homemade breadcrumbs by toasting bread and then blitzing it. Place toasted bread in food processor and blitz until fine bread crumbs. 1 slice of toast makes about 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

You can make these ahead of time to store in fridge and fry just before serving
