Chunky Fish Fingers and Chips

Serves 4

1kg bag over potato wedges
600g (1lb 5oz) cod loin
50g (2oz) plain flour, seasoned
1 egg
175g (6oz) fine white breadcrumbs
vegetable oil, for frying
1 lemon, cut into wedge

1 Cook the potato wedges according to the pack instructions.  Cut the cod loin in to 8 thick pieces.  Dust each piece of fish lightly with seasoned plain flour.  Beat the egg and pour on to a flat plate.  Dip each piece of fish first in the beaten egg, then in the breadcrumbs, to coat.
2 Half-fill a deep frying pan with vegetable oil and heat until very hot - a small cube of bread dropped in should brown in about 30 seconds.  Add half the breaded fish and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, turning once or twice until the breadcrumb coating is crisp and golden.  Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.  Cook the remaining fish in the same way.
3 Serve immediately with the potato wedges, lemon wedges, peas and mayonnaise.
