healthy homemade fish & chips? can it be so? magic 8-ball says: “it is decidedly so.” :)

baked (not fried), this recipe is a healthier option for that good ol’ comfort-food-go-to — fish & chips! some frozen basa filet from my freezer, a sweet potato from my pantry and some seafaring tunes on my iPod made for a fun culinary experiment that night. i added a little chipotle seasoning for a little extra fusion kick! here’s how…


– preheat oven to 400F

prep the fish:
in small prep bowl, whisk the following ingredients together to create a light batter:
– 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
– 2 eggs
– 1 tsp chipotle blend (combo of spices incl chipotle powder, ground paprika, cumin, coriander, granulated onion, garlic powder)

(tip: the chipotle seasoning will make the batter a bit dark in colour, but no worries, the panko crumbs will make a nice light crispy crust.)

in another prep bowl, place:
– 1.5 cups panko bread crumbs

– coat each basa filet in chipotle-flour batter (both sides) in small prep bowl
– then place each filet individually in second prep bowl & cover (both sides) w/ panko bread crumbs
– place breaded filets in medium-sized baking pan lined  w/ cooking parchment paper
– bake for 20min at 400F, until fish is cooked through (crust should be slightly browned, but not burnt)
