Hi anyone got an idea on how to make a low syn batter for oven baking fish? I have a craving xx
The SW website has their version of fish and chips, but it's more breadcrumb coating than batter...
Syns per serving:
2½ Syns on Green* and Extra Easy,
10½ Syns on Original
*add 6 Syns if not using cod as a Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice
4 x 142g/5oz cod fillets
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
908g/2lb Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes
4 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Place the cod fillets in a bowl, sprinkle over the lemon juice and season well. Leave to marinate for an hour.
2. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut into thick chips. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the chips for 5 minutes. Drain and dry on kitchen paper. Return to the dry pan and shake to ‘rough up’ the edges. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet, spray with Fry Light and season well.
3. Mix together the breadcrumbs, parsley and seasoning to taste. Lightly beat the eggs and place in a bowl. Dip each cod fillet into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs mixture to coat evenly and place on a baking sheet sprayed with Fry Light.
4. Place the chips in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Add the fish and cook for a further 15-20 minutes. Divide between four plates and serve with tomato ketchup (1 Syn per level tbsp).

If you want actual batter then just flour, water and lemon juice. And syn the amount of flour you use and get a pastry brush to brush it on so you don't use tons.
Great thank you x
Chips were bliss! Used both recipes for fish batter - 2 seperate pieces of fish I hasten to add- both to be recommended yay this diet is the best
I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to thank you for the batter/breadcrumb recipes, my husband will only eat fish like it comes from the chip shop but he doesn't want all the fat that comes along with it. Definately going to give this a try tonight.
