  • 8 peeled potatoes, cut into chips
  • Olive oil
  • 800g threadfin salmon (or other thin white but meaty fish fillets), boned, skinned
  • 120g (2 cups) fresh breadcrumbs
  • 50g (1/2 cup) finely grated parmesan cheese
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 120g (1 cup) of finely chopped spring onions
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt


  • 2 tablespoons good mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Green beans or salad, to serve


  • Step 1
    To make the oven chips, preheat oven to 200C (180C fan-forced).
  • Step 2
    Toss potatoes in a little olive oil and lay out on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bang in the oven for 35 minutes to brown.
  • Step 3
    Lightly oil fish fillets and place on silver foil on a baking tray. Leave out so the fillets come up to room temperature.
  • Step 4
    Toss together crumbs, zest, spring onions, parsley and finely-grated parmesan. Taste and season. Moisten crumbs with olive oil.
  • Step 5
    Lightly squeeze a handful of crumbs so they hold together and press on to fish surface. Repeat until the faces of the fillets are thickly covered.
  • Step 6
    Put fish in oven for 20 minutes. Turn the chips. After 20 minutes, check. Remove when crumbis golden and fish is just cooked and starts to flake, and potatoes are cooked and dark tanned. Sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Step 7
    Make a simple undressed iceberg salad or pop on green beans.
  • Step 8
    To make the dressing, whisk the mayo with the mustard and the capers. Add lemon juice and plate the fish with chips.
  • Step 9
    Serve with the dressing on the side and salad or beans.


Use a good mayo as the base for your dressing.
