Yup, these are fancied-up fish fingers. Just healthier, yummier and frenchified. Crush the almonds in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin or whirl briefly in a food processor.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp  (10 mL)  Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp  (2 mL)  each salt and pepper
  • 2-1/4 cups  (625 mL)  sliced almonds, toasted and crushed
  • 1 lb  (450 g)  haddock or sole, sliced in 1-inch / 2.5 cm thick strips
  • fresh parsley or lemon wedges, (optional)
  • Remoulade:
  • 3 tbsp  (45 mL)  mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 tbsp  (22 mL)  horseradish
  • 3 tbsp  (45 mL)  fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 2 tbsp  (30 mL)  fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup  (60 mL)  cornichons or pickles, finely diced


1. In small bowl, whisk together eggs, mustard, salt and pepper. Place almonds in separate bowl. Dredge haddock in egg mixture; shake off excess. Dredge in almonds.

2. Bake goujons on parchment-lined baking sheet in 400°F/200°C oven until fish flakes easily, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley and lemon wedges, if desired.

3. Meanwhile, for Remoulade, whisk together mayonnaise, horseradish, tarragon, lemon juice and cornichons. Serve with goujons.
