Healthy Winter Comfort Food: Fish and Chips

We’ll be posting a series of comforting, perfect-for-winter recipes that are easy to make at home – and much healthier than your takeout versions!

This recipe makes two portions. Cooking time will vary slightly depending on the size and thickness of the fish fillets.

What You Need


  • 1 large orange sweet potato
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • 2 lemons
  • Handful parsley, chopped
  • 2 hake fillets (150g to 200g each)
  • 200g of green vegetables, such as broccoli or courgettes, sliced lengthways, as needed.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Slice the sweet potato into chips, toss into a Ziplock bag with a little olive oil and salt, then place on a baking tray and put into the oven immediately
    (You can also cook these in an air fryer while you do the rest).
  3. Begin to prepare the fish by placing a sheet of baking paper on a second baking tray.
  4. Slice one lemon and place half the slices on baking paper, then some parsley, then the hake. Top with more parsley, a sprinkle of salt, a squeeze of lemon juice and the remaining slices of lemon. Seal the parcel by folding all sides and corners, making sure it is very secure.
  5. Place the vegetables in the same tray next to the fish and drizzle with olive oil and salt.
  6. When your sweet potato chips have cooked for 20 minutes, flip them over and add back into the oven with the second fish tray.
  7. Cook everything for a total of 10 to 15  minutes further (just make sure the fish is cooked through).
