Fish with a tortilla chip crust


Serves 4

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 15 minutes

Oven temperature: 180°C

• 4 firm white fish fillets (we used kingklip)

• 110 g tortilla chips (sour cream and chives flavour)

• about 45 ml sour cream

• 3 pickled jalapeños, chopped

• 15 ml fresh chives

1 Preheat the oven and line a baking tray with baking paper or foil (this makes it easier to clean afterwards). Cut each portion of fish in two equal pieces so that they cook more evenly.

2 Crush the tortilla chips to make coarse crumbs. Spread a layer of sour cream on each piece of fish and press the crumbs on top.

3 Bake for about 15 minutes or until just cooked. Sprinkle the jalapeños and chives on top and serve with coleslaw and fresh lemon wedges.

Tip Replace the chips with breadcrumbs for a more budgetfriendly meal.
