There’s nothing quite like homemade fish fingers and children from eight and nine upwards will love the new skills they learn with this recipe.

Ask an adult to preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.

Grease a baking tray using butter or margarine.

Place the breadcrumbs into a bowl with the mixed herbs and combine using a wooden spoon. You could also try adding 5ml of curry powder to the mixture to make it spicy.

With the help of an adult, cut the salmon fillet into four finger-sized pieces, and use your hands to search for and remove any bones. You could try using cod or plaice instead of salmon.

Dust each finger in flour, with some help from an adult. Place the yogurt onto a plate or bowl and dip each finger into it. Roll the fingers in the breadcrumbs. Children will love this part as it’s a chance to get messy!

Place the fish fingers onto the baking tray and ask an adult to put them in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until they are golden and crispy.

Serve in a pitta pocket with some salad for a perfect lunch.
