Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Cod Fingers

Appetizers are the meal starters that many home cooks overlook except perhaps when entertaining.  I admit that we don't have appetizers as part of our evening meal daily but we do have them a couple of times a week.  An appetizer is meant to stimulate the appetite so the serving size should be small and the choice should compliment the main course.

Cod fingers are a wonderful appetizer that is quite easy to make at home.  They are served simply with a tartar or lemon sauce.  You will need one small cod fillet per person.  Cut the cod fillets into 3/4 - inch strips.  Coat with a simple beer batter.  Deep fry until golden brown.  Drain and serve with the desired sauce.  

Cod fingers easily double as fish sticks for children.  Now the neat thing is you can fry up beer battered cod whole fillets for the adults then make cod fingers for the kids.  This is a time you want to use individual dipping bowls too.  I find our grandkids love dipping especially when they have their own dipping bowl.
