Fish or Chicken nuggets are one of Aditya’s favorite snacks. I try to keep some on hand all the time. Over the weekend I made some in bulk and froze them. One thing I have learnt is that for me at least bulk cooking though not easy is indeed a life saver. I can manage to cook only one dish or item in bulk in a week. And that gets over too fast if I start cooking before lunch time. So this time I started my cooking session after lunch. Every one was a little too full and only managed to snack on a few of the nuggets. Also I made sure I froze them before dinner time. The week before I had made the Teriyaki chicken balls which had ended up being lunch and dinner the day I made them, and not much was left to freeze.
Cooking a whole pack of Tilapia from COSTCO took me about three hours. This time also included interruptions of tending to the family and a half hour major break while I put Ujwala to sleep. I was happy with the results though. I have a gallon size Ziploc full of fish nuggets which should last a while for the occasional school lunch and evening snack. I had planned on making eggplant nuggets too, but never got around to it. I want to try and make them before Friday though as I was planning to take them for the Ladies Bunco night coming up.
The recipe for fish nuggets below is for 2 fillets of Tilapi.
