These Savoury Fish Bites are a nostalgic nod to fish fingers of our childhood; without any untoward additives and plenty more flavor. Seasoned polenta instead of breadcrumbs will mean your snack is gluten free, high in fibre, and lower in fat. So enjoy these with the kids, guilt-free for a quick and easy recipe that's even better homemade than out of the box. Mix up the flavors with mayo, sriracha or just a squeeze of lemon.
