Healthy Fish, Chips and Peas

Fish, chips and peas is not often considered the healthiest of meals. If you fancy having it for dinner tonight, however, or indeed any night, why not try this method of cooking it?

Ingredients (Per Person)

One skinned fillet of white fish such as haddock
1 large maris piper potato (unpeeled)
1 tbsp of frozen peas
Olive oil


Put your oven on to preheat to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 with a baking sheet inside. Chop your maris piper potato in to chips and add them to a large bowl or basin with enough olive oil to subsequently coat all the chips when stirred and salt to taste. Put the chips on to the hot baking sheet and in to the oven.

Place a large sheet of aluminium foil on to a second baking sheet and lightly oil the centre with olive oil. Place the fillet of haddock on the foil and wrap in to a sealed but loose parcel.

When the chips have been cooking for about fifteen minutes, take them out and shake the tray gently to ensure they are not sticking to it. Return them to the oven for a further twelve to fifteen minutes along with the tray containing the fish.

The frozen peas generally only take two to three minutes to cook in boiling water. The instructions will be on the packet which you buy so follow them accordingly.


If using a different type of fish, the cooking time will have to be amended accordingly. For example, whiting will cook quicker than haddock while cod is likely to take slightly longer.
