    About this recipe: The time it takes to make this dish is probably quicker than going to your local chippy. Succulent fish is surrounded by a crunchy coating. Serve with chips and mushy peas, if desired.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 95g dry potato flakes
    • 125g plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon garlic granules
    • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
    • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper or to taste
    • 4 (170g) fillets cod fish
    • 450g butter flavoured margarine, for frying

    2. Soak fish fillets in bowl of cold water.
    3. In a deep frying pan or deep-fat fryer, melt and heat the margarine to 180 degrees C.

    Alternatives to cod:

    Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
