Cooking time

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup Best Foods mayonnaise
  • 2 gherkin finely chopped
  • 2 tsp capers finely chopped
  • small handful parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juice

Crumbed Fish Bites

  • 400 gram firm white fish fillets
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt
  • black peppercorn
  • 2 eggs whisked

Recipe Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine all ingredients for the tartare sauce. Store in the fridge until needed.

  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C and place a wire rack on a rimmed oven tray (or just line with baking paper)

  3. Prepare 3 shallow bowls - place the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in one, the eggs in one and the panko breadcrumbs in one.

  4. Pat the fish fillets dry and slice into pieces approximately 5cm x 5cm. Working one piece at a time, dredge the fish pieces in the flour then the egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Then dip in the breadcrumbs making sure the entire piece is coated.

  5. Place on the prepared baking tray and repeat with all pieces of fish. Bake for 10-12 minutes until crumbs are starting to go golden brown and the fish is just cooked through.

  6. Serve immediately with tartare sauce.
