Friday Food: Oven Baked Fish N' Chips

I'm not sure how common the Friday Fish Fry are over the country but at least in Minnesota and Wisconsin they are a staple to start off the weekend.  So in honor of that we are putting our own spin on the Friday Fish Fry but in our case the Friday Fish Bake.  Enjoy this fantastic yet healthy recipe.
Oven Baked Fish N’ Chips


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup lowfat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 pounds cod fillets, divided
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Steamed spinach, for serving.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet lined with foil with cooking spray.
Arrange potatoes on baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Season with salt and black pepper. Bake 25 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.
In a shallow dish, whisk together flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Whisk in milk and egg. Add cod fillets and turn to coat with batter. Add cod to a baking sheet that's been lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray and bake 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown and fork-tender.
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar and honey to serve as a dipping sauce. Serve 1 pound of the fish and all of the potatoes with this meal. Reserve 1/2 pound fish for another recipe.
Serve with 4 cups steamed spinach.
