Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1kg sweet potato, peeled, sliced into wedges
  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 x 120 g firm white fish fillets
  • garden salad and lemon wedges, to serve


1. Preheat oven to 230 °C (210 °C fan-forced) and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. 

2. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a tray, spray liberally with oil and bake for 15 minutes on top shelf of the oven. 

3. Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs, cheese and basil in a shallow dish. 

4. Fill a separate shallow bowl with beaten egg. 

5. Dip fish in egg wash, shake off excess so it is damp but not wet. 

6. Add fish to breadcrumb mixture, turning to make sure it is well coated and gently press on crumbs. Spray liberally with oil. 

7. Arrange on the second baking tray and place in oven underneath wedges. 

8. Turn wedges over and bake both for 10 minutes until fish is golden and cooked through and wedges are crisp. 

9. Divide between plates and serve with salad and lemon on the side.


  • For extra flavour, sprinkle some chopped rosemary leaves, finely grated lemon rind, dried chilli flakes or your favourite spice over the sweet potato chips before baking.
