It's comfort food at its best but can easily turn into a stodge fest, especially if you add a helping of mushy peas. Our version nets all the nostalgic flavours with half the calories and a fraction of the fat

  • 1kg maris piper potatoes, cut into 1cm wide chips

Dip each fish fillet into the egg to coat, then dip in the crumbs and put on the baking tray. When the chips have been cooking for 20 min, put the fish into the oven for 18–20 min.
