SW recipe: Fish fingers, chips and mushy peas

Serves 4
Ready in about 1 hour
Syns per serving: 1


800g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, cut into thick chips

Low-calorie cooking spray

25g Paxo Golden Breadcrumbs

3 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp garlic granules

2 tsp onion granules

700g cod loin, cut into 20 fingers (about 6cm x 2cm each)

2 medium eggs, lightly beaten

800g cherry vine tomatoes

300g can mushy peas

150g fat-free natural fromage frais

2 tbsp finely chopped gherkins, plus extra chopped gherkin to serve

2 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus extra to serve

4 tbsp passata


1 Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Spread the chips on a large, non-stick baking tray in a single layer and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Season and bake for 40 minutes, turning halfway, or until golden.

2 Meanwhile, mix together the breadcrumbs, parsley, and garlic and onion granules. Season and spread on a plate. Dip the top of each fish finger into the egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Transfer to a large, non-stick baking tray in a single layer, crumb-side up, and spray with low-calorie cooking spray.

3 Add the tomatoes to the baking tray with the fish fingers. Bake below the chips for the final 12-15 minutes of their cooking time, or until the fish fingers are cooked through.

4 Heat the mushy peas in a saucepan until piping hot. To make the tartare sauce, mix together the fromage frais, gherkins and dill in a serving dish, then top with the extra gherkins and dill. Divide the fish fingers between 4 plates with the tomatoes and mushy peas, and season. Serve with the chips, tartare sauce and passata ‘ketchup’.

For a chip shop-style dinner, cover the tops of 4 skinless and boneless whole white fish fillets with the breadcrumb mixture and bake for the same amount of time

Add in Healthy Extras®
To help provide a good balance of nutrients, enjoy two measured portions of milk or cheese each day – your Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices.

Also have one portion of wholemeal bread or breakfast cereal each day – your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. To keep things simple we’ve built your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice into the menu plan each day.

Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
