Fish and chips

  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 large Desiree Potatoes, peeled
  • 2-3 salmon fillets, sliced into chunks
  • 100g Panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs, or Matzo meal
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3-4 sun-dried tomatoes, whizzed or finely chopped
  • 4 large Desiree Potatoes


1 Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

2 Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Peel the potatoes, slice into four lengthways, and then slice each piece into chips, roughly the same size.

3 Tip the chips into the boiling water and cook for five minutes. Drain well. Line a baking tray with tin foil, sprinkle over a little oil and spread the par-boiled chips onto the tin.

4 Use your hands to coat the chips well in the oil. Bake the chips in the oven for 20 minutes, then turn them over using a large fish slice and carry on baking for a further 20 minutes until golden and crispy.

5 Ten minutes or so before the end, start to prepare the fish. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate and add the grated lemon zest. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and mix everything together with a fork.

6 Dip each piece of salmon into the egg first and then into the breadcrumbs, using your fingers to pat the breadcrumbs evenly over the salmon pieces.

7 Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large frying pan, and then add the crumbed salmon slices. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until golden and crispy all over and cooked on the inside.

8 Take the chips out of the oven, sprinkle over some vinegar and serve immediately alongside the cooked salmon.
