“My baked fish is a shoo-in when you want fish and chips without the frying mess. Dare I say, they’re a little upgrade from the English pub classic. Get more of my recipe at cinnamonspiceandeverythingnice.com.”

  • 1-1/2 pounds baking potatoes (about 3 medium)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4 fish fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Malt vinegar, optional


  1. For tartar sauce, in a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, relish and lemon zest. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1-in.-thick wedges; toss with oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread evenly in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Roast until golden brown, stirring occasionally, 40-45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast panko bread crumbs over medium-low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a shallow bowl; stir in seasoned bread crumbs.
  4. Sprinkle fish with the remaining salt and pepper; spread top and sides of fish with mayonnaise. Dip in crumb mixture to cover mayonnaise, pressing firmly to help adhere. Place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan, crumb side up. Sprinkle with any remaining crumb mixture. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes.
  5. Toss potatoes with cheese and parsley. Serve fish and potatoes with tartar sauce and, if desired, vinegar.
