Fish and Fries Recipe

For an awesome crunch and golden color without deep frying, we coat fish with cornflake crumbs and bake it. Try it with homemade French fries for a fun spin on fish and chips. —Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado .
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • FISH:
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 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

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Peel and cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-in.-thick slices; cut slices into 1/2-in.-thick sticks.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
