Crispy fish bites
A favourite among children and easy to make for Mum.

500g cod fillet or other firm white fish, without skin

75g plain flour

2 eggs, beaten

200g fresh white breadcrumbs

1 ltr vegetable or rapeseed oil (for deep frying)

For the sauce:

200 ml mayonnaise

2 tbsp capers

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 lemon

For the sauce, mix the mayonnaise with the capers, parsley and the juice of half the lemon in a bowl and chill.

Cut the fish into finger-sized pieces.

Sprinkle the flour on a plate and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Dip the fish first into the seasoned flour, then the eggs and finally the breadcrumbs, until they are well coated.

Half fill a large, deep saucepan with the oil and heat until a crust of bread will brown in 40 seconds.

Fry the fish in the hot oil, in batches, so that the temperature of the oil does not lower until golden brown, about 2–3 minutes.

Drain well on kitchen paper and serve with the sauce and the remaining lemon cut into wedges.
