Can you pan fry frozen fish fingers? My oven is broken. I think I used to 20 years ago or so.

I saw a 70s Birdseye's advert on YouTube once where they did this, so I guess yes.

They were all glisteny. Blech.

Thanks. Yes, I think my DM used to fry them for us in the 70s. I'll wipe the grease off grin

Is your grill working? I alway do mine under the grill.

I think I would defrost them first, unless you're deep frying.

Yep, pan fry, deep fry, oven or grill!

Don't defrost fish fingers!

Yes you can shallow or deep fry them

Smidgin of oil in a non-stick pan and fry gently over a very low heat to defrost them. Turn the heat up to crisp them up at the end.

I do, it's quicker when doing toddler sized portions! You need very little oil, medium heat and a lid to keep the heat in and cook them right through

Ooh you can pan fry from frozen? Very interesting!

Don't defrost them!
They will be mush

I do them in the toaster, and potato waffles. Yum

IcedVanillaLatte Mon 08-Aug-16 13:53:25

OMG fish fingers in the toaster?! This could revolutionise lives.

peaceloveandtwirlywoos Mon 08-Aug-16 18:19:32

What setting on the toaster? How long? I need more details!

Bambooshoots14 Mon 08-Aug-16 21:29:13

I just put them down 2 times ish, same for waffles. try 2 times and if not cooked put down another time 🐷

But doesn't toaster + water (frozen = water) = death, surely?

IcedVanillaLatte Mon 08-Aug-16 23:50:01

Death by fish finger. Can't think of a better way to go.

The coroner's report would be hilarious.

Mil does.

It is not good.

You can microwave them too. The breadcrumbs don't go crispy but they still taste lush!

IcedVanillaLatte Tue 09-Aug-16 08:50:35

The breadcrumbs don't go crispy

I can't imagine anything sadder than a soggy fish finger sad

Anyway, we need an update from OP! What happened in the end? I wait with bated breath.

Bambooshoots14 Tue 09-Aug-16 10:22:04

Never had any death by fish finger toaster problems grin

I dry fry them on a non-stick pan, with a lid over them to speed it up and then off to let them crisp. Only takes a few minutes and no glisteny grease.
