1 To make crumbs, place cornflakes in a blender or processor and process until they become fine crumbs. Place in a shallow bowl and mix with LSA, lemon zest and Cajun seasoning. Stir in chopped parsley.
2 Place wholemeal flour and egg whites in separate shallow dishes. Dip fish in flour to coat then in egg white and finally in crumbs. Chill for 30 minutes.
3 While fish is chilling, prepare chips. Cook kumara wedges, courgettes and carrot sticks in batches in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. Transfer to a baking dish and spray with oil. Sprinkle with paprika.
4 Mix tartare sauce ingredients together and chill. Mix salad ingredients together, season and chill.
5 Once ready to cook, preheat oven to 190ºC. Place kumara, courgette and carrot in oven 15 minutes before fish. Place fish on a rack and spray with oil. Add to oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. Re-spray vegetables halfway through cooking.
6 Serve fish with chips, salad and tartare sauce on the side. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
What we did
- Replaced white flour and breadcrumbs with wholemeal flour, LSA and corn flakes to coat fish (reduced carbohydrates and kilojoules; increased fibre)
- Made chips with kumara (added fibre, vitamin C, folate, vitamin A and B vitamins)
- Added courgettes and carrots to our chips (reduced carbohydrates and kilojoules; increased vitamin B3 and vitamin A)
- Based our tartare sauce on a low-fat plain yoghurt rather than a full-fat mayonnaise (reduced saturated fat)
