Man hailed ‘genius’ for fish finger pizza sandwich but others aren’t convinced

The social media user, known as Mikey G, shared a picture of the dish to the Rate My Plate group on Facebook and users were divided.

Rate my Plate is a community where people upload pictures of their weirdest and most wonderful dishes to be judged by fellow foodies and the latest creation to be judged was Mikey’s.

On the plate were four fish fingers sandwiched between a microwaveable pizza and then cut into two halves, which he simply captioned: “Fish finger sandwich with pizza bread by Mikey G.”

Since sharing the picture on the group, Mikey G’s sarnie has sparked a heated social media debate, with a number of Twitter users jumping to his defence.

One exclaimed: “This is genius.”

Another added: “I think I would be into it!”

And a third chimed in: “I would demolish that” and another added: “A thing of beauty.”

Despite many wanting to get their hands on the dish, others weren’t quite so sure.

One told Mikey: “Seek urgent medical attention please,” as another called it “disgusting”.

A third chimed in: “It’s a no from me.”

As a fourth quipped: “All that’s missing… a bin to throw it in.”

Annalisa Fanali, General Marketing Manager at Birds Eye, commented: “We know that Brits go mad for fish finger sandwiches at the best of times, but lockdown really seems to have inspired more people to experiment with new combinations.

“In fact, sales of Birds Eye fish fingers have increased by over 29 per cent over the last few months, as more people turn to them as a tasty and versatile staple for any time of the day.

“We love pushing the boundaries of the fish finger sandwich, having created our very own Fish Finger Korma Naanwich to celebrate National Curry Week last October.

“We always love to hear how people are getting creative in the kitchen, and this combination of pizza and fish fingers is a great example.”
