We all have to have a “treat” meal every now and then. I have been chained to my desk recently, studying for today’s exam. On the way home, I felt fairly exhausted and the lure of the chippie / Chinese takeaway was calling…
Somehow managed to resit, what helped was knowing I had 2 cod fillets sat in the fridge (and I hate food waste!) Using a significant amount of willpower, I drove past those pesky takeaways and rustled this up, known affectionately in the Slimming World-World as a fakeaway!
Syn free on Extra Easy, serves 4.
2 cod fillets
2 sweet potatoes
Half tin baked beans
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan oven), peel and chop the sweet potato into chip sized pieces. Place in a bowl, add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg and season well. Shake to cover all the chips, place on a baking tray and spray with Frylight. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the cod on a baking tray and season. Separate the egg and whisk the white until it forms a soft peak. Whisk the yolk in a separate bowl and fold into the egg white. Add salt to the mixture and spoon over the fish. Once the chips have been cooking for 20 minutes. add the fish and bake for 15 minutes.
Serve up, garnished with parsley and add some baked beans or veg on the side. Much healthier alternative!
Disclaimer: I should probably mention that the egg “frosting” on the fish does not crisp, it is more of a bubbly texture – sorry to disappoint! I think only fat can only really achieve the crispy batter texture… if you know otherwise please let me know. Still think this version’s pretty tasty though!
