Fish & Chips with Dipping Sauce Recipe

My husband and I really like fish and chips, but not all the grease that typically comes along with it. I decided to give the classic dinner a makeover. Turns out the pickle dip is healthier than tartar sauce, and we like it a lot better—who knew? —Michelle Lucas, Cold Spring, Kentucky
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill pickle
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • FRIES:
  • 4 large potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • FISH:
  • 1-1/2 cups panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large egg whites, beaten
  • 4 cod fillets (4 ounces each)
  • Cooking spray
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

  • 1. Arrange one oven rack at lowest rack setting; place second rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mix sour cream, chopped pickle, pickle juice and pepper. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
  • 2. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. julienne strips. Rinse well and pat dry. In a large bowl, toss with oil, salt and pepper; transfer to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake on bottom oven rack 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and tender, turning once.
  • 3. For fish, in a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Place egg whites in a separate shallow bowl. Dip fish in egg whites, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  • 4. Transfer to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spritz fish with cooking spray. Bake on top oven rack 14-16 minutes or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Serve with fries, sour cream mixture and lemon wedges. Yield: 4 servings.

"I feel bad being the nay-sayer but my husband and I weren't thrilled with this. I often cook fish in the oven, so the process wasn't new to me. The fish just didn't have enough flavor; I couldn't taste the garlic or onion powder at all. The sauce seemed to lack flavor as well. I couldn't taste any pickle juice in it at all. It was basically sour cream with chopped pickles inside. We did enjoy the potatoes though. I used a basting oil we have pre-made with thyme, garlic, and other herbs. We have so many other fish recipes we love that I highly doubt we'll be coming back to this."
