Slimming World fish and chips

Serves: 4

  • Cooking time:


  • 6 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into chips
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • 4 skinless cod or haddock fillets
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • lemon wedges, to serve

  •    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Boil the chips in lightly salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain well, return to the pan and cover. Leave to cool slightly then shake the pan to roughen the edges a little.
    2. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking parchment and arrange the chips in a single layer. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
    3. Meanwhile, arrange the fish fillets on another baking tray lined with non-stick baking parchment. Whisk the egg whites in a large bowl until they form soft peaks. Whisk the yolks in another bowl, add a pinch of salt and fold into the egg whites. Spoon the egg mixture over the fish and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the egg is lightly browned and the fish is cooked through.
    4. Season the fish and chips and serve with mushy peas and lemon wedges to squeeze over.

    1. Sorry, I really didn't enjoy this one, not sure if I did something wrong. The egg yolks didn't fold easily into the beaten egg white but sank to the bottom, and the steam from the fish when cooking made the 'batter' soft rather than crispy, as I'd prefer.

    2. Did you whisk the yolks ? Don't use salt, it will break down the protein in the eggs.
