  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a large, shallow roasting tin, toss the potatoes with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 mins, turning once or twice, until tender and crisp.
  2. Just before the chips are done, mix the flour, some salt, pepper and the Creole seasoning together on a plate. Dip the trout in the mix to evenly coat. Heat 2 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan. When hot, carefully place the fish, skin-side down, in the pan. Fry for 3 mins, then flip and cook for 1-2 mins more or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large pan. Add the spinach, cook until just wilted, then serve with the fish and hot chips.

Very tasty and fast to make. The coating on the fish is lovely an crispy. Will definitely make this again. I added a little salt and pepper to the spinach as it wilted, and just wilted using the water from washing it rather than adding oil.

I made the spice mix: 1tbsp each: oregano, basil ,onion salt, garlic salt. 1tsp each: thyme, black pepper, white pepper, cayenne and 2 tbsp paprika. Not because I think using premixed is a 'cop out' just because I had all the spices needed in my cupboard so I didn't want to buy more.

Gave this a 4 star cos I don't think it's cheating to use a spice mix. I think it's more economical than buying the 6-7 spices individually. Great idea and great chips!!!

I made the sweet potato chips but i used chilli oil and a bit of paprika to give a bit of a kick to the chips. They were very good.

What a cop out to use a spice mix! This isn't a recipe, it's just cooking food as it comes.
