Birds Eye have created the world’s smallest fish finger sandwich- which even comes with a tiny dollop of ketchup.

The microscopic meal, created with the help of miniatures artist Nadia Michaux, took over 100 hours to make and is less than a centimetre tall.

Created to commemorate the launch of their new Mini Fish Fingers, the miniature measures just 16mm by 15mm and is 8mm tall, and weighs roughly the same as a single pea.

Speaking of the painstaking process, Nadia said: ‘This was an incredibly difficult challenge, given the size of this sandwich makes up no more than four 5p coins stacked on top of each other, and each tiny fish finger measured around 5mm by 11mm.’

The sandwich, made up of clay components, is topped with a slither of butter, a miniscule lettuce leaf and a tiny drop of ketchup.

Each element of the sarnie was informed by a poll commissioned by the brand which found ‘real’ butter, two slices of white bread, ketchup and lettuce make up the perfect fish finger sandwich.

Following a meticulous process, the hand shaped clay parts were expertly painted to bring them to life to perfectly match the proportions of the Playmobil Captain figurine – an item shoppers can get by purchasing two special edition packs of the new Mini Fish Fingers.

Dace Khudher, from Birds Eye, added: ‘We’ve created the tallest fish finger sandwich, travelled round the world to reveal recipes for every taste, and now with the help of Nadia we’ve been able to create our smallest fish finger sandwich ever.

‘There’s some incredible precision involved in creating something so small and the attention to detail and care that has gone into making this is something we can really relate to.’

Speaking of her pride in creating the miniature sandwich, Nadia added: ‘I was really pleased with the result, and I’m so glad the Captain gave it his seal of approval.’

Nadia isn’t the only artist ‘cooking up’ miniature food either- in 2019 doll’s house enthuisiast Roz Maclean started selling her own mini meals to buyers across the world.

Roz, a pharmacy technician from Inverness, became fascinated with miniature food after making a tiny meal for her mum’s doll house. 

The mum-of-two taught herself how to make the minuscule designs by watching YouTube videos, and sells her creations for £25 a pop on her Etsy store.
