Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Pour the beaten egg into a shallow dish. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Mix the lemon zest into the breadcrumbs along with the oregano and some salt and pepper.
  2. Brush a non-stick baking sheet with half the oil. Dip the fish strips into the egg, then roll them in the breadcrumbs. Transfer to the baking sheet and bake for 20 mins until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the mayo with a squeeze of lemon juice. Toss the spinach leaves and peas with a squeeze more lemon juice and the remaining oil. Serve the fish fingers with the spinach and peas and a spoonful of the lemony mayo.

I served these with posh stacked chipped for a very elegant dinner party (with kids!). Cant beat posh fish fingers and chips!

I found the bread crumbs stuck fine. Just dip into plenty of egg. Little tip - use old crusts that you have saved though the week as it makes it so much easier to make bread crumbs.

Very nice. Well worth a try. I served with mushy peas and potato wedges. Yummy.

I used wholemeal breadcrumbs, it was a bit difficult to get them to stick, so I didnt have perfect coverage, but that just made them look nice and chunky and homemade. It is the lemon zest that makes the recipie so yummy
