Did you know that salmon is considered a "super-food"? It is packed with vitamins and Omega 3. It can even help to improve focus at school! However, it can often be frustratingly difficult to convince your little ones to try it due to its heavy fishy scent. That is why my Baked Salmon Fingers are a fool-proof way to get salmon into your family's diet. It's a yummy alternative to shop-bought fish fingers, and I guarantee that even the pickiest of eaters will love its crispy, cheesy coating! These are great to store in the freezer, and are a fantastic finger food for weaning babies too!
