A fresh take on fish and chips

Baked fish and chips

Deep-fried battered fish and chips ... Taste: greasy. Nutritional value: questionable. After effects: bloated, queasy tummy. Baked fish with sweet potato chips ... Taste, nutritional value and after effects: sensational! You can spice up this dish by adding herbs and spices to the breadcrumbs: try crushed dill seeds, fresh tarragon or fresh thyme.

olive oil spray

300g sweet potato, peeled

250g firm white fish fillets

1 tbsp plain flour

1 small egg, lightly beaten

¼ cup fresh breadcrumbs

sea salt (optional)

lemon wedges, to serve

2 large handfuls mixed salad leaves, to serve
Preheat oven to 220ºC. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper and lightly spray with oil.

Cut sweet potato into 1.5cm-thick slices. Cut slices into chips and place on prepared tray. Spray lightly with oil and bake for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut fish into 15cm x 5cm strips. Toss in flour, then dip in egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Place on second tray and place into oven with sweet potato. Bake fish for 5-10 minutes, depending on thickness.

Serve baked fish with chips, a pinch of salt, if desired, lemon wedges and mixed leaves.
