Sorry BBC, but those are NOT mushy peas. Crushed peas or pea purée perhaps but not true mushy peas - which are made with dried, marrow fat peas.

I agree, mushy peas have a distinctive flavour that goes very well with fish & chips & can only be made from marrowfat peas, soaked overnight & then boiled to a mush - delicious!!

I cooked the peas in the microwave and they turned out a bit mushy but that didn't matter because HC gave them to the dog!

I really enjoyed this recipe. It was a little bit difficult to get the crumbs to stick on but it didn't matter because it tasted lovely and didn't leave me feeling fat and full which fish and chips usually does! I would recommend as a healthier alternative to fried fish.

Quick and easy recipe and tasty too, not quite like chip shop fish n chips but a good healthy option.

I used pollock and i was a good substitute for cod.
