After initially tasting the Succulent Tomato Sauce from Susannah’s Sauces we were thinking about how best to use it, as it tasted so good.
The Succulent Tomato Sauce can be used in a number of ways. Warm it and toss in some pasta, pour over meatballs or, as we discovered, treat it even more simply in the role of a condiment much like ketchup.
The first thing that sprang to mind was fish and chips but we wanted something a little lighter and delicate and perhaps more sophisticated.
We made a pile of slim salmon fish fingers to dip into the tomato sauce.
The juicy pink salmon is so much more interesting than plain white fish and perfectly complements the Mediterranean flavours of the sauce.
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 450 – 500g salmon fillets, skinless
- 3 tbsp plain flour
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 75g white breadcrumbs
- 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
- Succulent Tomato Sauce* from Susannah’s Sauces to serve
Cut across the fish fillets to make fingers of about 2cm wide.
Put the flour in a shallow dish along with the salt, pepper and oregano an mix to combine.
Pour the beaten egg in another shallow dish and put the breadcrumbs into a third shallow dish.
Gently toss each piece of salmon in the seasoned flour until evenly coated, then dip into the beaten egg followed by the breadcrumbs until completely coated. Place on a plate and place in the fridge for 20 minutes or so to allow the coating to set.
Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan. To test that it is hot enough, drop in a small piece of bread until it sizzles and browns.
Carefully add the fish fingers and fry for 3 – 4 minutes, turning occasionally until golden and crisp all over.
Remove the fish using a spatula and drain on kitchen paper.
