Looking for a healthy fish and chips recipe? We don’t blame you! When the weather is warm, there’s nothing quite like a hot and fresh bundle of fish and chips. Akin to a beach day or evening picnic in the park, it’s a meal laden in summer memories.

Replacing greasy batter with a zesty lemon and crunchy dukkah coating, and swapping traditional potato fries for sweet potato wedges, our take on the classic amps up the nutrients without compromising on flavour.

Flathead is a source of omega-3 DHA and protein, while sweet potatoes are full of vitamin C and betacarotene. Better yet, accompanied by a crunchy slaw it’s a delicious way to help your family eat the rainbow.

Servings: 2

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into wedges
  • 2 flathead fillets*
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp dukkah
  • 3-4 stems kale, chopped
  • 1/8 red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 white cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • ½ beetroot, grated
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar**


1. Preheat the oven to 180֯C and line a tray with baking paper.

2. Place sweet potato wedges on the lined tray, spray with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 20-30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, squeeze lemon over the flathead, sprinkle with dukkah and gently toss so that the fillets are evenly covered.

4. To prepare the slaw, toss the vegetables in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

5. When the sweet potato is almost finished, lightly spray a saucepan with olive oil, add the fillets and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side.


* Flathead can be substituted for any white fish fillets. For a fish-free option, chicken is a suitable alternative.

** Substitute olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a milder dressing to make this recipe suitable for children with sensitive tastebuds.
