'Twisted' cod nuggets

Fish nuggets were originally made from cod cheeks in the Netherlands. Nowadays, however, due to the high price of cod, they are made from other types of fish such as pollack, hake, whiting and coley. In this component, we will be using the original main ingredient, but will be coating it in an unusual crust.
