An easy meal to satisfy the whole family
I find it can be difficult to persuade the kids and even OH to eat fish. With today being Ash Wednesday the only way to get them to eat it is breaded and fried. I have to admit it is my favourite way to eat fish though not really the healthiest.
3-4 fillets of any white fish
250g flour seasoned with salt and pepper
200g dried breadcrumbs (I buy a tub of golden crumbs in the shop)
1 Large Cornichon or a few small ones
Cut the fish into chunky strips and place into the flour. Dust well in the flour and then place them in the milk. Next place them in the breadcrumbs and make sure they are all well coated in crumbs. If you have time it is best to chill these for at least 20 mins but you can cook them straight away though you may lose some of the crumb coating. Heat the oil in a frying pan – you need about 2cm of oil so the amount depends on the size of your frying pan. Fry for a few minutes, then place on kitchen paper to drain. Place in a warm oven while you make the tartare sauce.
Chop up the cornichons as fine as you like and mix into the mayonnaise with a squeeze of lemon juice to give a nice dropping consistency. Cut the rest of the lemon into wedges and serve with the goujons and tartare sauce. A few oven chips turn this into a lovely meal for the family. Enjoy!!!
