Ready in about 45 minutes
Syns per serving: 1½
4 medium to large floury potatoes, such as King Edward, peeled and cut into chips
Low-calorie cooking spray
2 large eggs, separated
2 level tbsp self-raising flour
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 tsp paprika
4 thick skinless and boneless cod fillets
Lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad, to serve
For the tartare sauce:
1 small red onion, finely chopped
2 level tbsp extra-light mayonnaise
200g fat-free natural fromage frais
1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest and 1 tbsp lemon juice, plus wedges to serve
4 tbsp drained and roughly chopped gherkins, plus whole sliced gherkins to serve
2 tbsp chopped drained capers, plus a few whole capers to serve
1 tomato, finely chopped, reserving a little to serve
4 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill, plus extra to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Spread the chips in a single layer on a large, non-stick baking tray and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Season and bake on the middle shelf for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
2 Meanwhile, put the egg whites in a clean, glass bowl and whisk to form stiff peaks. Beat the yolks in another bowl, fold the egg whites into them, and set aside. Put the flour, herbs and paprika into a shallow dish and season. Dip one side of a cod fillet into the seasoned flour, then dip the same side into the egg mixture to coat evenly. Transfer to a non-stick baking tray, coated-side up; repeat with the remaining fillets. Bake on the top shelf for 15-20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the top is lightly browned.
3 Mix together all the tartare sauce ingredients and set aside. Divide the fish, chips and tartare sauce topped with the whole capers and reserved tomato between 4 plates. Scatter over the extra dill and serve with the lemon wedges, gherkins and salad seasoned with freshly ground black pepper.
