The tang in the salt and vinegar chips mellows as these fish fillets bake in the oven, creating a crunchy spin on fish and chips. Look to hook-and-line-caught Atlantic or Pacific cod for the most sustainable choice.
4 (6-ounce) cod fillets (or other firm white fish)
2 teaspoons canola mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (2-ounce) package salt and vinegar kettle-style potato chips, crushed
1/2 cup light ranch dressing
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Arrange fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush 1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise over top of each fillet; sprinkle evenly with salt. Gently press about 2 tablespoons crushed chips evenly on top of each fillet. Cook fish at 400° for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with ranch dressing.
What a fabulous lunch! I made this recipe (served with C.L.'s Simple Slaw recipe) over the weekend quickly between taking down x-mas decorations. What a wonderfully easy and light meal! I could not have been more pleased at both the ease and taste of this recipe. We used catfish in lieu of cod and I omitted the ranch dressing entirely (did not need it!) It was perfectly filling and clean up was a breeze (just gather and toss the parchment paper). I can't wait to make this again (and soon!) - the salt & vinegar taste was just enough to give the fish that almost beer battered taste (without the calories / mess). 100% a keeper - Enjoy!
I think salt & vinegar chips are yucky, but am so glad I trusted your reviews and followed the recipe! So easy, so good, really recommend this. We used cod loins, rinsed them and then put uncovered in fridge for about 20 min to air-dry. Skipped the ranch dressing. Served with spicy cole slaw & steamed asparagus cooled to room temp. Very good.
I was disappointed in this as I was really excited to make it. It was easy but not a lot of flavor. I added some fish seasoning to the fish based on other reviews. My biggest disappointment was cooking it on the Parchment paper. It stuck and we lost half of the fish if I made it again I would just cook it on a pan sprayed with cooking spray. Maybe mix up the chips and use some Jalapeno chips along with the salt and vinegar. Also took more than the 10 mins it said to cook.
