    2. Set out the egg, flour and sesame seeds in three separate shallow dishes. Add some black pepper to the egg, if liked.
    3. Pour oil into a small frying pan to a depth of about 1cm. Heat over medium high heat.
    4. Remove feta from freezer and dredge each finger in the egg, then flour, egg again, then sesame. Evenly coat all sides.
    5. Add the fingers to the hot oil. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, till golden brown. Remove from oil and briefly drain excess oil on kitchen paper.
    6. Place feta fingers on a serving plate and drizzle with honey. Enjoy straightaway while hot.
