  • 2 fillets of river cobbler (or any similar white fish)
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 wholemeal pitta bread
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil (or any oil you prefer)


  1. Take the river cobbler and cut into finger sized pieces. Set aside.

  2. Take your pitta bread and blitz to fine crumbs in the blender. Add the lemon zest and rosemary and pulse to mix.

  3. Take your fish pieces and dust first with flour, then coat in the beaten egg, and finally roll in the pitta crumbs. You can prepare them and refrigerate for several hours before cooking if required.

  4. When ready to cook, heat a frying pan over a moderate heat and add the oil. Test the heat of the oil by adding a small piece of bread. If it sizzles immediately, you can start cooking the fish.

  5. Cook the fish goujons for 4 minutes, turning after 2 minutes.
