filet-o-fish - but Slimming World friendly, thank you very much
Let's do the filet-o-fish then. The McDonalds original uses a white bun, pollock fish shaped into a square, a slice of cheese from 1977 and some tartare sauce. We've kept close to the original, but forgive us for using a brioche bun: we just don't have time for using whatever postage sized stamp breadbun SW are allowing this week. If you want to lower the syns, use a different breadbun.
The filet-o-fish from McDonalds comes in at 14.5 syns and let's be honest, you can normally shave with them they're that dry. This, even with the fancy bun and shop-bought (and slightly tinkered with) tartare sauce, is exactly the same syns. Knock 8 syns off if you use a normal breadbun. Heathen.
1 tbsp flour
4 white fish fillets (we used cod)
4 brioche buns (around 8 syns each, if you use the ASDA ones, but swap out for your HEB if you want)
a thick slice of cheese from your HEA allowance
100g panko (25g each - 4.5 syns)
4 tbsp tartare sauce (2 syns each)
preheat the oven to 180°c and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper
vigorously whisk together the egg and flour in a bowl and set aside
sprinkle the panko out onto a plate or shallow dish
carefully dredge the fish through the batter and let any excess run off
gently push each of the fish fillets into the panko and sprinkle any over the top, until well covered, then place on the baking tray
bake in the oven for 12 minutes, then place one (half) slice onto the top of each, and bake for another 3 minutes
slice the buns and spread with tartare sauce, and add the fish
as discussed, swap out the breadbun for a healthier one if your life is devoid of joy
you can make your own tartare sauce but it's an absolute clit-on, and syn wise, to get a decent sauce you'll actually end up using more
we've styled this on the McDonalds Filet-o-Fish that uses half a slice of cheese per burger, but if you want the whole slice then treat yourself
to make this ever so slightly healthier you can omit the flour from the batter, but it really does give a better result and is only a quarter of a tbsp each, so we say keep it in
we couldn't be prouder of our second book: it's technicolour, the recipes are banging and the reviews are amazing: order yours here!
if you're struggling for funds, the first book is a bit cheaper and still utterly glorious: click here to order
like our colourful Le Creuset plates - of course you do, we're style icons up there with Les Dennis and Janice Battersby - you can order those right here too - though, they're out of stock at the time of writing
