Fakeaway slimming world fish and chips
This epic feast is totally #synfree and not a bad chip off the old block from the original! I love fish and chips and it’s hard for me not to want to pop down to the chippy sometimes. When I’m feeling those kind of greedy vibes, I try making this as my alternative! GG crispbread has been a bit of a godsend since I started doing the #scanbranchallenge, it makes an amazing crust on things like fish and chicken! You can buy it from amazon or Holland and Barrett and 5 crispbreads are 1 x HeB choice on slimming world.
This recipe feeds 2. You will need a very good blender or chopper! I have done it with a hand blender in the past but it does tend to fly around everywhere.
2 haddock or cod fillets, unsmoked and plain
2 large potatoes, Maris piper or similar are ideal
Garden peas, as many or few as you like!
Baked beans, 1 x 400g (standard size) tin
2 gg crispbreads (count as one half of HEB choice)
1 slice of brown bread (other half of HEB choice)
Half a tsp Powdered vegetable stock or Bouillion
1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees for fan assisted ovens, adjust if not.
2. Slice your potatoes into chip size, I leave the skins off but you can peel them if you wish.
3. Spray a non stick baking tray with frylight and lay the chips down on the tray before spraying with more frylight.
4. Pop the chips in the oven for 40 minutes, turning at least once during this time and applying more frylight if required.
5. While the chips are cooking, prepare your ‘batter’ blend. To do this, start by blitzing your gg crispbread, bread, bouillion, plus a grind of salt and pepper in a blender until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Pour the dry mixture into a nice big bowl as you will be dipping the fish it in later and it needs to fit in easily!
6. Prepare a second empty bowl (also a nice wide big one that the fish can be dipped into) and crack the egg into the bowl. Beat well.
7. Take your fish and dip thoroughly first in the egg and then into the bread mixture before putting on an oven dish. I used a grill tray with foil underneath and it seemed to work well. You may need to spray your oven dish with frylight also if not using a grill tray.
8. Wait until the chips have done about 25 minutes and add the fish to the oven for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
9. While the fish is cooking, boil up your peas and then blitz them with a few leaves of fresh mint. Once blitzed, you may need to mash them slightly with a fork or potato masher.
10. Prepare your baked beans, and then serve everything hot and together!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
