I first happened to taste them as a teenager at some holiday homes. I had been there with my cousin’s family. They had this same kind of fish fingers served with a white mayo sauce. Even after exploring so many places in US I could not find that or even similar tasting fish fingers.

I was like still in search of that perfect fish finger with white sauce combo. While I was talking to my husband about this, I realized that he had never tasted something like that. That’s the moment, I decided that I should find the recipe soon.
