Recipe of the month

There is nothing more British than Fish and Chips, and this has long been a favourite for many.

Being that Cod is very much in season, forget the local chippy and cook homemade fish and chips with Chef Gino.

  • 2 Cod Loin

  • 2 Eggs

  • 100g Panko Breadcrumbs

  • 1 Lemon Zest

  • 1 small bunch of parsley

  • 50g Plain Flour

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Place seasoned flour and whisked eggs in separate bowls

  • Combine the fennel with grated lemon zest and the breadcrumbs to make your crumb mix

  • Pat your cod dry with tissue and coat in the flour, eggs and then the crumb mix

  • Repeat one more time to allow a double crust which will allow a crisper finish

  • Place on lined baking tray and bake until the crust is crispy and the cod is cooked to 50 degrees Celsius

  • Once the chips and cod are ready, serve alongside your favourite salad and accompaniments
