  • 2 lemons
  • 10g chives
  • 4 x 100g basa fillets
  • 4 carrots
  • 90ml mayonnaise
  • 320g mixed green veg
  • 60g panko breadcrumbs
  • 6 medium white potatoes




  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7. Cut the potatoes (skins on) into thin chips. Add the chips to a baking tray with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt. Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the chives finely. Combine the chopped chives with the panko breadcrumbs and a generous pinch of salt in a small bowl. Add a generous drizzle of olive oil and stir it together until all of the breadcrumbs are coated in the oil – this is your chive crumb
  3. Add the basa fillets to a separate baking tray and pat them dry with kitchen paper. Top the fish evenly with the chive crumb and press it into the fish using the back of a spoon. Put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until golden and cooked through
  4. While the fish is cooking, combine the juice of half a lemon with the mayonnaise in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your lemony mayo.
  5. Boil a kettle. Top, tail, peel and chop the carrots into batons.
  6. Add the carrot batons to a pot with plenty of boiling water over a high heat. Once boiling, cook for 1 min. Trim the green beans, then add the green veg and cook for a further 3-4 min or until tender with a bite. Once done, drain the vegetables and return them to the pot with a knob of butter. Keep covered until serving.
  7. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges. Serve the breaded fish with the chips, vegetables and lemony mayo to the side. Garnish with a wedge of lemon and enjoy!
