  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut each fillet into chunky strips.
  3. Arrange three bowls in a row – one each for the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs.
  4. Dip each fish goujon into the flour, then the egg wash, and finally into the breadcrumbs. Lay the crumbed fish on a lined baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
  5. To make the wedges, wash and pat dry the sweet potatoes, then slice lengthways into wedges. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then place on a baking tray and cook for approx. 20 mins, turning halfway.

If you want to change up the recipe, try adding some herbs or grated parmesan to the breadcrumbs. You can also give the wedges a kick by adding some chilli powder or smoked paprika when you’re seasoning them. Enjoy!
