Healthy Twist Fish N Chips


  • 2 large cod or haddock fillets
  • 40g oat bran
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 160g cooked (cold) quinoa (e.g Merchant Gourmet sachets)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, quartered to squeeze over the fish once cooked
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, cut into chips


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Place the sweet potato chips on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and add a generous serving of salt and pepper. Toss together and cook for 30–35 minutes.
  2. 15–20 minutes before the potatoes are ready begin to prepare the fish by gently patting each fillet with kitchen towel before seasoning to soak up any moisture, sprinkle with the salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Set up two plates and a bowl. Spread the oat bran on one plate, the quinoa on the other and place the egg in the bowl.
  4. Coat both sides of each fillet in the oat bran and shake off any excess before coating it in the beaten egg and allowing any excess egg to drip off before covering in the quinoa. Use your hands to press the quinoa onto the fish.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a pan on a medium to high heat. To check the temperature throw some of the excess quinoa into the pan and if it starts sizzling straight away then you’re good to go.
  6. Gently place the fillets into the pan and cook until the quinoa turns golden which should be about 4 minutes on each side. Remove the fillets from the pan and place them on some paper towels to get rid of any excess oil.
  7. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the top and enjoy.
