I would just look at what you have and serve it! I sometimes serve weird combinations because it has to be eaten; its what we have! So for example it would not be unheard for me to just cook the fishfingers and serve with some soup that needed to be eaten!
A fish sandwich of some sorts is really nice / or a wrap (ala Leons?)
You could do any type of mash with root veg as well.
You could cook up some rice, add whatever vegetables you have and then chop up the fishfingers and mix with this. Or just rice as a side dish instead of the potatoes - Leon once again serves a fish finger on rice and peas as a childrens dish .... really yummy ....
I need to get away from this fishfingers&potato mindset, obviously!
Great suggestions, I can put together a selection of veg, and I actually have that tiny pasta that looks like rice which, now I think about it, would go really well. I think I might even have a tin of beans in the cupboard too.
I've been a ill in bed with a cold for 2 days so have not been shopping, hence the slightly bizzare stuff that I have in stock.
I love MN - you can ask the most inane question and get proper, useful responses
Have a look in the freezer section next time you are shopping. They are apparently 'all natural mashed potatos' with nothing added . They're a hit with fussy dinner guests the children bring home from school.
Put 10 fishfingers in oven proof dish. Scatter some sliced mushrooms over the top. Mix one can campbells condensed mushroom soup with half the can milk and half wine. Pour over. Bake in oven 180c, for 45 mins, stirring halfway through. Serve with veg (and a baked potato if storecupboard allows.)
I know it shouldn't work but it does - the breadcrumb coating mixes with the sauce to thicken and you have all the nice white fish in creamy mushroomy sauce mmmm.
