Taken from a 1973 issue of Woman's Weekly, this traditional British fish and chips are cooked in the oven, rather than in the deep-fat fryer. 

This recipe takes just 55 minutes to prepare and bake and takes just two steps to make these delicious fish nuggets and homemade chips. You can use cod or haddock in this recipe. 


  • 2 med-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into chips
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 pieces cod or haddock fillet, about 150g (5oz) each
  • 1 tsp plain flour, seasoned
  • 1 med egg, beaten
  • 5 tbs dried breadcrumbs

To serve:

  • Lemon wedges
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Vinegar




  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 7 or 220°C. Put a baking tray into heat up for 20 mins. Dry the raw potato chips with a clean tea towel, then toss them in 1 tbs of the oil. Put them on the baking sheet and cook for about 30 mins, turning them once.
  2. Meanwhile, dust the fish with the flour, dip it in the egg and then coat in the breadcrumbs. Put on the baking tray with the chips, drizzle with the rest of the oil and bake for 15 mins. Serve with lemon wedges, salt, pepper and vinegar.
