Oven Baked Fish with Sweet Potato Wedges
Prep: 5 min
Cook: 25 min
Servings: 4
A healthy and tasty twist on fish and chips


  • 1 kg sweet potato, cut into wedges
  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbs Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 x 120 g firm white boneless fish fillet
  • garden salad and lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 230ºC (210ºC fan-forced) and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a tray, spray liberally with oil and bake for 15 minutes on top shelf of the oven.
  3. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese and basil in a shallow dish. Fill a separate shallow bowl with beaten egg. Dip fish in egg wash, shake off excess so it is damp but not wet. Add fish to breadcrumb mixture, turning to make sure it is well coated and gently press on crumbs. Spray liberally with oil. Arrange on the second baking tray and place in oven underneath wedges.
  4. Turn wedges over and bake both for 10 minutes until fish is golden and cooked through and wedges are crisp.
  5. Divide between plates and serve with salad and lemon on the side.

Variation: For extra flavour, sprinkle some chopped rosemary leaves, finely grated lemon rind, dried chilli flakes or your favourite spice over the sweet potato chips before baking.

Healthy tip!

Chilli, lemon and herbs add flavour - great alternatives to butter and salt!
