This Morning: ITV viewers in debate over James Martin’s fish finger sandwich

James cooked his version of the classic dish

This Morning chef James Martin divided ITV viewers today with his fish finger sandwich recipe.

James, 48, revealed his recipe of the classic dish during Monday’s show (March 15).

However, it didn’t win all viewers over as some declared it was NOT a fish finger sandwich.

One person said on Twitter: “Fish finger sandwich with out fish fingers??”

Another wrote: “That’s more of a fish hand than a finger!”

What did viewers say?

A third tweeted: “That is not a fish finger, it’s a slice of fish in breadcrumbs!”

Meanwhile, others questioned why James was “faffing” about with the recipe.

That is not a fish finger, it’s a slice of fish in breadcrumbs!

One added: “Sod this faffing about. Birds Eye fish fingers, Hovis bread, Hellmann’s mayo. Job done. No prep, no effort, all the flavour.”

Another said: “I like James, but if you’re having a fish finger sandwich, it’s because you want something simple. [Expletive] all this faffing about.”

One wrote: “‘Epic fish finger sandwich’ recipe. No one wants to faff about making a fish finger sandwich.

“You pick up a loaf of bread, some butter and a box of Birds Eye fish fingers. Pop the fish fingers in the oven, toast the bread and you’re done.”

Another said: “There is absolutely no need for rabbit food in your fish finger sandwich; diabolical behaviour.”

Meanwhile, others thought James’ recipe looked amazing.

She said, “Are you making the fish fingers?” to which James replied: “Yes… it would be a lot easier if I just defrosted them.

“My life would be a lot easier if I just went to the freezer and just defrosted everything!”

Holly burst into giggles as Phillip Schofield joked: “I don’t know how you’d fill eight minutes with take them out the freezer.”

Birds Eye even tweeted This Morning, admitting it made them “giggle”.
