- 1 pound potatoes (about 2 medium)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2/3 cup crushed cornflakes
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 pound haddock or cod fillets
- Tartar sauce, optional
- Preheat oven to 425°. Peel and cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-in.-thick slices; cut slices into 1/2-in.-thick sticks.
- In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil and pepper. Transfer to a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, stirring once.
- Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix flour and pepper. In another shallow bowl, whisk egg with water. In a third bowl, toss cornflakes with cheese and cayenne. Dip fish in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in cornflake mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
- Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 10-12 minutes or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Serve with potatoes and, if desired, tartar sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

Reviews for Fish and Fries
"Nice crunch to this fish topping. Take care not to overbake as the fish gets less moist & a little chewy. But I will make again... was good."
"This turned out well, especially the fries. However, the cook seems to have an aversion to salt, so I added some to both the fish & the fries."
"This fish turned out crispy and good. I, too, added salt to the fries."
"Loved it. I did add season salt to my fries as well - just seemed to need it as I was throwing them together. It was a great lighter alternative to fried fish. No smoke alarm issues here. :)"
"Fish and fries were very good. The only change I made was to add seasoned salt to the fries, and they turned out soo good! Weird, but i also had a problem with my smoke alarm, like another reviewer."
"Did not make the fries to go with this because I don't have any potatoes on hand to make fries. This was very easy to make and very yummy. Due to a problem with my smoke alarms in my apartment I can't turn the oven to 425, so I baked the fish at 375 for a half an hour. It turned out perfectly, and I can't wait to make it again for lunch tomorrow."
