Fish fingers are a fun snack for kids and adults alike, and Shaun Rankin's fish fingers recipe utilises a strikingly tasty ingredient in the batter: lemonade. This battered fish makes a light snack for 4 or a swell lunch served alongside salad and rice, or perhaps a delicious filling for a fish finger sandwich.

Method
1.
Preheat the deep fat fryer to 180°C. Alternatively, fill a deep saucepan with sunflower oil to halfway and, using a cooking thermometer, heat to 180°C
2.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the lemonade and flour to make the batter. Set aside
3.
Cut the cod fillets into 8 individual goujons
4.
Dip each cod goujon in the lemonade batter until completely covered
5.
Carefully lower the fish into the deep-fat fryer or saucepan and cook for 4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy
Lighten it up
Deep-frying should not make food excessively greasy. The trick is to keep the oil hot enough and not leave the food in it for too long
6.
Remove the goujons from the fryer using a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on kitchen paper. Season to taste with salt and pepper
7.
Serve with the lime segments and some dollops of tartare sauce
