Step 4

Chop up a good handful of parsley. Might not seem like the most important ingredient but trust me it gives it a lovely even balance.

Step 5

Stir that into the sauce. You want it thicker rather than really watery

Step 6

One key difference between restaurants and home cooks is seasoning. Lash in a good bit of black pepper and salt into your sauce. This will make all the difference

Lash on a frying pan over a medium heat and chuck in some oil.

Step 8

You can do your fish fingers in the oven or under the grill but I prefer them in a pan. Gets them nice and crispy and golden brown.

Step 9

Mushy peas aren't for everybody but I love them in this recipe. Lash them into a small pot and heat them up. Even a student could do this in fairness.

Step 10

The cooking part of this is going to take about five minutes tops. All you are really doing is heating stuff up. Not rocket science.

Step 11

Cut the bread. You want really big huge slices. There is going to be a lot of sauce and the wet peas in there so the bread needs to be strong enough to hold it all together.

Step 12

Smear the sauce onto the bread. Don't be shy with it.

Step 13

When the fish fingers are golden brown and the peas are piping hot with the liquid steamed off whip them off the heat.

Step 14

Chuck the peas straight onto the bread. Use a slotted spoon so as you are only getting the flesh and not the watery parts.

Lash the fish fingers on next.

Possibly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. This is a weekend dish, one that fills you full of comfort and warms the heart. I licked the plate clean and I'm already planning on making another one tomorrow evening. A new “Go to” epic dish.
