Uunified Fish Finger Sandwich with Jalapeno Tartar Sauce

You can’t beat a fish finger sandwich! In fact back in February Birds Eye searched for the UK’s most innovative and attention-grabbing fish finger sandwich creation, I wish I had been around at the time as this recipe is a real winner!


400g Cod Loin
Juice of Half a Lemon
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Italian Mixed Herbs
½ tsp Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper

½ tsp Yeast
150g White Bread Flour
150g Wholemeal Bread Flour
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
170ml Water

Tartar Sauce
5 tbsp Mayonnaise
2 tsp Chopped Capers
4 tsp Chopped Gherkins
2 tsp Chopped Jalapenos
1 tsp Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Lemon Juice


  1. First we will make the dough for the bread and allow it to prove. Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl then add the wet ones and knead into a dough.
  2. Separate the dough into 10 to 12 small balls and leave them to prove in a warm place for at least 2 hours for best results.
  3. Next make your tartar sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside ready for later.
  4. Mix together the garam masala, paprika, mixed herbs, garlic powder, salt & pepper. This is your rub/seasoning.
  5. Cut your fish into the desired fish finger size, I think just under an inch wide is best.
  6. Squeeze the lemon juice all over the fish and then sprinkle the rub mixture over the top.
  7. Get your Uuni up to a high temperature ready to make your breads.
  8. Hand stretch you bread to be about 3 to 4 inches long and an inch and a half wide.
  9. When your Uuni is up to temperature cook you breads in batches, maybe 3 at a time turning each one after around 15 seconds.
  10. Once you have made all your breads put a cast iron sizzler pan with a small amount of oil in to heat up.
  11. Using a heat proof glove or tongs remove the cast iron pan from the Uuni and place 3 or 4 fish fingers in the pan and return to the Uuni for around 1 minute.
  12. Once your fish is cooked slice open your breads add a little tartar sauce and a fish finger.
  13. Enjoy!
