Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 Tablespoons white breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 lemon, grated and juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 14 Ounces white fish, cut into 12 strips
  • 4 Tablespoons extra-light mayonnaise

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Brush a nonstick baking tray with a little of the olive oil.

Pour the beaten egg into a wide bowl. Put the breadcrumbs on a plate and mix in the mixed herbs, lemon zest, and a little salt and pepper.

Dip each piece of fish first in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs, making sure it’s lightly coated in each and put on the prepared baking tray. Lightly drizzle the remaining olive oil over the top and cook in the oven for 15-18 minutes until golden.

Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Serve the fish goujons with the lemon mayonnaise on the side.

Fish Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Fish Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Fish Wine Pairing

Most white wines (especially albariño) and rosé with most fish dishes. Muscadet, sancerre, or New Zealand sauvignon blanc with cold fish dishes; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, or pinot blanc with grilled or roasted fish; sauvignon blanc or gewürztraminer with baked fish; grüner veltliner with fish pâté; vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with light fish dishes; fino or manzanilla with small fried fish; junmai, junmai-ginjo, or junmai-daiginjo with teriyaki fish.
