Domestic goddess Nigella Lawson returned to our screens tonight (Monday November 9) and immediately divided viewers with her Indian-themed fish fingers dish.

The 60-year-old foodie favourite was back on BBC Two with a new series of Nigella, Cook, Eat, Repeat and showcased another batch of innovative recipes and kitchen hacks.

But it was her fish fingers dish that really got viewers talking.

She told viewers that “this is fish fingers as you’ve never eaten them before”.

Gently frying onions, red chilli, ginger, garlic and spices she said it was time for the ‘mash’ element of the dish.

This is fish fingers as you’ve never eaten them before.

To everyone’s surprise, she opened the oven and proceeded to mash up some fish fingers.

She then seductively mixed them into the mixture frying away on the stove.

How did viewers react?
