Breadcrumbed Cod and Chips with Healthy Happy Hearts

HHH Logo

As discussed before, The Healthy Happy Hearts Campaign runs for a 6 weeks spell to introduce families into eating more fish, more regularly.   I agreed to be up to the challenge of eating two portions of fish a week with my family for 6 weeks.  Fish is the Dish sent us enough fish for the whole family to eat two portions of fish a week for 6 weeks.

For my second Healthy Happy Hearts post, I’ve chosen to tell you how to breadcrumb cod.  We were sent some lovely pieces by Delish Fish as part of the Healthy Happy Hearts Campaign being run on the Fish is the Dish website.

Breadcrumbing fish for cooking is something we do fairly frequently when fish comes our way.  It seems to taste better by using this method for white fish and helps kids with the fast food type appearance it has, while giving them good and healthy food that I know the ingredients of.

This is really simple to do and beats the shop bought versions hands down.

Give it a try, you won’t regret it.

Servings 4


  • 4 Cod Fillets
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Flour
  • 3 Beaten Eggs
  • Chips Frozen or fresh, cooked.
  • Lemon and Parsley Garnish
  • Rapeseed Oil Optional for shallow frying.


  • Place flour, beaten eggs and breadcrumbs into three separate dishes and lay them out.
  • First the fish needs to be dried. The easiest way to do that is to roll it in the flour until it is dry or coated.
  • Then dip it in the beaten egg until fully coated.
  • Finally dip it into the breadcrumbs until the fish is fully covered with a thin coating.
  • Shallow fry in a frying pan on moderate heat for a few minutes until cooked. I prefer to cook in rapeseed oil. You could oven bake on a moderate heat for 15 - 20 minutes, but we prefer the shallow fry for speed.
  • Garnish and Serve with Chips
