  • Coat the potatoes with the mixture and place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, turning them over about 15 minutes in.

  • Gently place the fish into the hot oil and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  • Take the fish from the oil and place on paper towels to drain.
