Recipe: Fish Fingers & Mushy Peas


Fancy a healthier breaded fish dish? We have used a pepper purée under our breadcrumbs to add another vegetable to the dish, not to mention great colour and a natural sweetness. To top it all off, we have baked it too to make it super healthy. Also, did you know that tinned mushy peas lose a lot of nutrients during the canning process? We have a quick mushy pea recipe that tastes delicious without losing those precious nutrients. A perfect recipe for all the family.
