Before you start

Pay attention to the timing of the potato and fish preparation so that the fish is baked during the last 15 min of potato baking.


Preheat the oven to 260°C/500°F. Line with parchment paper a large baking sheet then oil it lightly. Start baking the potatoes. Prepare the fish during the first 15 min of potato baking. Bake the fish with the potatoes during the last 15 min of potato baking.

  1. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 4-6 wedges. It is important to cut them into wedges of similar size so that they will all cook evenly and be done at the same time.
  2. In a deep dish, whisk the egg white with the paprika and salt. Add the potato wedges and coat them well with the egg white mixture. Transfer them to the baking sheet. Don't crowd the potatoes on the sheet or they will steam and not turn golden-brown.
  3. Bake on the bottom oven rack 15 min, then turn the potatoes and bake an additional 15 min.

  1. Cut the fish into servings.
  2. Prepare 2 shallow dishes: beat the egg and milk in one dish, then combine the bread crumbs, flour, spices, and a pinch of salt in the other dish. Dip one fish piece at the time, first in the flour mixture, then in the egg mixture. Let the excess egg drip off before coating the fish in the flour mixture again. Turn the fish to coat both sides.
  3. Put the fish on an oiled rack of a broiler pan and spray them evenly with a vegetable oil spray. Bake the fish for 15 min on the top oven rack.
  4. Take the fish and chips out of the oven. Add salt to taste. Serve with the tartar sauce on the side.

The texture of both the fries and the cod was pitch-perfect: crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. This will be our new go-to fish-&-chip recipe.

It is a great recipe for cod. Loved it. I did not do the sauce because of the mayo and it was a mistake. The cod, being a fairly "tasteless" fish needs some kind of a sauce.Will do it next time.

I used tilapia because it was available. I thought the recipe was ok for the fish.
