Grain free fish fingers

After the success of the grain free chicken nuggets I thought I would have a go at grain free fish fingers. I  recently had some frozen shop bought gluten free fish fingers but was disappointed by the quality of the fish inside. I decided to make a grain free version myself so I could then make them with good quality fresh fish. I was really pleased with the results.

mine took five minutes in all

this depends on the thickness and size of your fish fingers.
