Ready In:




  • Breheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius Blanch potatoes by putting them in a large pan of salted water and bring to boil. Drain well.
  • Tip potatoes in a shallow baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and mix until evenly coated with oil. Arrange wedges in single layer, sprinkle with salt. Cook 35 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the fish. Mix together the breadcrumbs, cornmeal, and paprika in a bowl. Dip haddock or cod fillets into the flour, shake well to remove excess, then into egg white, and finally into the crum mixture until evenly coated.
  • Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cook 12-15 minutes until cooked through and golden. Serve with chips.

    I only made the cod but it was quite good. I liked how this had a slight crunch to the top, without being "too" bready. My daughter (who complained about having fish) had two helpings! I had a very thick piece of cod, so I baked it at least 15 min. more. I served with steak fries. I haven't made cod too often, but this has motivated me to try it more often. Thanks Ppaper doll, for posting. Rpxygirl

    I too just made the fish part of the recipe. and I had to make a couple of adjustments cus I was certain i had some cornmeal and discovered i didn't and the only crumbs i had were panco, but followed the recipe with everything else. added the flour, paprika etc., to the panco. turned out wonderfully crisp. we loved it. Thanks for posting it was a lovely way to make my cod.

    Very good. I am rating this on the fish alone, but I pretty much use the same technique for my oven baked potato wedges (not "chips" on this side of the pond, haha). I used some salmon fillets that I happened to have in my freezer, but it was still tasty. This will be my new go to recipe for breaded fish. Thank you for posting.


I'm an American living in London since I got married in 1994 (except for a brief stint in New Jersey, and then Luxembourg). I work part-time for a national charity and also study social sciences part-time with the Open University. Keeps me busy, but I still find plenty of time to cook and search for 'zaar recipes! Over time my cooking has meshed English and American customs together, especially at holiday time. I make a mean Christmas fruitcake complete with Fondant Icing and marzipan, but I still have a Christmas cookie party for my friends where I introduce (or subject!) them to all my favorite cookie recipes. My husband and two kids will happily eat Shepherd's Pie or Sloppy Joes, cheese and onion or grilled cheese sandwiches. The comparisons go on and on...
