Swap this for that

Why not try swapping Sweetcorn for any of our Love Veg veggie puree pouches! Also, If you swap the white fish for salmon, you can introduce some healthy omega 3 fats

Handy tip

For a taste twist, add a little smoked paprika, onion powder or herbs to the breadcrumb. Make sure the mash is cool before you form the fingers.
