Recipe Tips

Try different types of vegetables to find your favorite flavor.

Taste the sauce before pouring and season to your taste.

Do not place the fish fingers too close together so that they can cook evenly.

Bake the casserole in a preheated oven to make it nice and crispy.

Leave the casserole to rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the sauce to set.

Serve the casserole with a fresh salad or other side dish.

The casserole can be prepared up to 24 hours in advance.

Simply cover it and put it in the fridge and bake it the next day as described.

Storage:

Options

Fish: Instead of fish fingers, you can use diced fish (e.g. salmon, cod) and add it to the casserole dish.

Vegetables: Try different types of vegetables such as spinach, mushrooms, zucchinis or peppers.

Cheese: For an extra cheesy crust, you can sprinkle grated cheese over the casserole before it goes into the oven.

Sauce: Refine the sauce with various spices and herbs, such as curry powder, dill or Italian herbs.

Vegetarian version: Replace the fish fingers with diced tofu, seitan or lentils and use vegetable stock instead of fish sauce.

Pairings

Salad: A colorful salad with fresh ingredients such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and a simple dressing goes perfectly with the casserole and adds a light touch.

Other vegetables: Steamed vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower or peas add extra vitamins and nutrients to the casserole.
