Baked Fish and Chips is a healthy meal your family will request again and again. What's not to love?

If there is one meal my family can agree on, it would be fish and chips. Everyone loves it, even my picky teenage son. While this may be a favorite family dinner, I do not like to fry anything. So I came up with a healthier version of this meal and there is no pan of oil required.

Pieces of cod are coated with egg and a mixture of seasoning, panko bread crumbs and crushed crispy rice cereal. Thin sliced potatoes are drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. The whole meal is baked in less than 30 minutes.

It can be served with a side of garlic butter broccoli and carrots or a shopska salad for a complete meal. Since it’s light and healthy, I don’t feel guilty splurging on a dessert such as slow cooker chocolate lava cake or Swedish apple pie.

The panko bread crumbs and crushed cereal give the fish lots of crispiness. I use a Cajun seasoning so there is a slight kick in the flavoring. Make sure to cook the fish on a wire rack so the fish is crispy on the bottom and top. I like to use this cod in my fish stick tacos recipe also. Frozen boxed fish sticks are great in a pinch, but the tacos are even better when you make your own crispy fish.

To make sure both your fish and potatoes cook evenly, they must be cut in uniform size. The thinner the potatoes are cut, the quicker they will cook and the crispier they will get. I cut them extra thin because my family likes really crispy fries.

The next time you need a quick and easy dinner, make these fish and chips. You’ll be happy when your family then requests this healthy meal every month.
