This is one of those “one taste and you’ll want to finish the lot” dishes and a great way to bring out the flavour of a delicate sweet tasting fish

  • You will need
  • Method
  • Lemon sole 450g, skinned fillets
  • Fresh white breadcrumbs 100g
  • Parmesan 25g, finely grated
  • Cayenne pepper 1⁄2 tsp
  • Sunflower oil for deep frying
  • Plain flour 50g
  • Eggs 3, beaten
  • Sea salt
  • Lemon wedges to serve
  1. Cut each lemon sole fillet diagonally across into finger-sized thick strips.
  2. Mix the breadcrumbs with the grated parmesan and cayenne pepper and set aside.
  3. Heat some oil for deep frying to 190°c or until a cube of day-old bread will brown in about a minute. Line a baking tray with plenty of kitchen paper.
  4. Coat the goujons a few at a time in the flour, then in beaten egg and finally in the breadcrumb mixture, making sure that they all take on an even coating and remain separate.
  5. Drop a small handful of goujons into the oil and deep fry for about 1 minute until crisp and golden. Lift out with a slotted spoon onto the tray to drain and repeat with the remainder, making sure the oil has come back to temperature first.
  6. Place the goujons onto 4 warmed plates and garnish with the lemon wedges.
  7.  Serve with a mixed whole leaf or herb salad, dressed with a little extra virgin oil and some seasoning.
