Fish fingers that both adults and kids will love? They exist, here are 5 of the best

Published by Finn Hayden

For years, fish fingers got a bad rap as an unhealthy food which were considered in the same bracket as turkey dinosaurs and potato smiley faces. And we're not surprised by this either - there was definitely a time when most fish fingers that you bought from the supermarket didn't actually contain very much.

But times have changed and now you can buy fish fingers which are not only healthy and made from real fish, but they're also delicious. We wanted to round up the best fish fingers that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Young’s Gastro Tempura Battered

Young's is a brand which sells a variety of excellent fish products, and we think the Gastro Tempura Battered fish fingers are among the best you can buy from the brand. These fish fingers are made from 100% cod fillet, and all of the fish used to make these fish fingers is responsibly sourced. In fact, Young's has a fish for life programme which ensures that the company will always fish in a sustainable manner. The tempura batter coating these fish fingers is crispy and delicious, and Young's claims that the fish used to make these fish fingers is restaurant quality (we'd certainly agree).

BirdsEye Haddock fish fingers

The BirdsEye brand has really reinvented itself in recent years, and now the brand has a wide range of excellent food products. The haddock fish fingers from BirdsEye are a great example of this - made with 100% haddock fillet, all of the fish used to make these fish fingers is responsibly sourced by the BirdsEye team. The batter used for the fish fingers is really nice and crispy and made without any artificial ingredients such as colours or flavours (it's made just wheat flour, potato starch, and a pinch of paprika and salt). We're really impressed by these, learn more and buy them here -

Waitrose chunky breaded haddock fish fingers

We often include food products from Waitrose in our guides because the supermarket so often makes excellent own-brand food products, and the fish fingers from Waitrose are a great example of this. The haddock sourced for these fish fingers comes from the North East Atlantic and the fish fingers contain 100% haddock fillet. We love the crispy batter and the chunky texture of the fish makes these lovely to eat. Learn more and buy them here -

Young’s Omega 3

Another great option from Young's is the Omega 3 fish fingers. These fish fingers are made without the use of any artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. The fish used to make these fish fingers is Alaska Pollock, a lesser-known fish which is actually very healthy and packed with Omega 3, hence the name of the product. We really like the taste of these fish fingers and think the crispy batter coating them is perfect. Learn more and buy them here -

Sainsbury's Chunky Haddock Fish Fingers Taste the Difference

The Taste the Difference range from Sainsbury's is actually very underrated and we've included a number of products from this range in our guides such as the excellent pasta sauce in a jar. These fish fingers from the Taste the Difference range are made using 100% haddock fillet and have a chunky texture which is really pleasant. All of the fish used to make these fish fingers is line caught, which minimises bycatch. Learn more and buy them here -
