From memory, about 20!

The problem with fish and chips is that unlike Dominos, McD's etc, it isn't standard.

5 spray(s) Cooking Spray, Calorie Controlled
700 g Potatoes, Old, Raw, scrubbed and cut into wedges
2 tablespoons Oil, Olive
1 pinch Salt
1 teaspoons (ground) Pepper, Black (Whole, Cracked or Ground)
25 g Flour, Wheat, White, Plain
1 medium Egg, Whole
2 tablespoons Water, cold
50 g Breadcrumbs, Dried
700 g Fish, Haddock, Raw, (4 x 175g fillets)
1 medium Lemon, cut into wedges, to serve
1 tablespoons Vinegar, All Types, malt, to serve
4 sprigs of parsley to garnish

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 6/200°C/400°F. Mist a baking sheet with spray cooking oil.

Put potato wedges into a roasting pan. Add olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare fish. Sprinkle flour onto a plate, season with salt and pepper. Beat egg and water together in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle breadcrumbs onto a separate plate. Coat fish in seasoned flour, dip into egg mixture, then coat in breadcrumbs. Arrange on baking sheet.

Reduce oven to Gas Mark 5/190°C/375°F. Continue to bake the potatoes, with the fish positioned below them, for another 15 - 20 minutes. To check that the fish is cooked, test it with a fork - the flesh should be opaque and should flake easily.

Serve the fish and chips with vinegar, lemon wedges, salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley.

Yes they have to be from the shop! Thanks for your help. There is a lady in my meeting who has lost about 5 stones so far and has never gained, always lost or sts and she has f&c sometimes, so I know it can be done :0)

As I remember, about 14 pp for a piece of cod in the Eating out guide, could that be right I wonder?
