Enough for 2-4 people depending on your appetite


2-4 x fillets (Skinned and boned) of your favourite fish

3 tbsp plain flour to coat

1 egg beaten

Splash of milk (optional)

Pinch of salt

100g panko crumbs (or similar)

1 fresh lemon cut into wedges

  1. Beat the eggs with salt and milk until runny and set aside.
  2. Use a bowl or dish to coat the fish fillets in flour.
  3. Dip the fillets in egg mix until completely covered in egg.
  4. Using tongs or slotted spoon remove fillet from egg and straight into crumb mix
  5. Make sure the crumbs have completely coated the fish and keep uncovered in the fridge until needed.
  6. Pan fry with just enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan. TIP: preheat oil until sizzling hot, before cooking fish and be careful when frying to keep temperature moderate, but not smoking.
  7. Turn when golden brown and crispy all over.
  8. Drain on paper towel and serve with lemon wedges, oven chips and a good dollop of Tartare sauce.

  5. Once cool toss in spice rub or just sea salt or even lightly dust with smoked paprika.
  6. Place in the oven on high 220-240 deg. C and bake until crisp. Turn potatoes over half way through to get even colour all over.
