  • 3 baking potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 3 cups corn flakes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 4 halibut fillets (1 lb/500 g total)
  • 4 cod fillets (1 lb/500 g total)


Scrub potatoes; cut each into 8 wedges. Toss with oil and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper; place on large rimmed baking sheet.

Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven for 20 minutes. Turn and bake for 10 minutes longer or until crisp and golden outside and tender inside; move to edge of baking sheet.

Meanwhile, pour cereal into plastic bag. Using rolling pin, crush to make coarse crumbs; transfer to plate. On separate plate, stir together flour, seasoning, rind and remaining salt and pepper.

In shallow dish, whisk together egg and milk. Dip fillets, 1 at a time, into flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip into egg mixture, then into crumbs, pressing lightly to coat.

Place in centre of baking sheet. Return baking sheet to oven for about 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork and is crispy outside.
