Day 20: Fish and Chips

Fish and chips has long been a family favourite, but what you pick up from the local chippy isn’t often what your body needs or wants! We’ve been encouraging you to cook as much as you can from scratch, so here’s a recipe for a heart-healthy alternative to fish and chips thats high in protein, complex carbs and good fats and low in saturated fat and salt.

Serves 1

  • 1 x Salmon fillet
  • 1 x Wedge of lemon
  • 1 x Small sweet potato


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180C.
  • Chop the sweet potato into rough wedges.
  • Line a roasting tin with tin foil and bake wedges for 35-40mins. You can add a sprinkle of paprika for extra oomph! No oil needed.
  • Roast the salmon fillet with a wedge of lemon in an oven-proof dish for 10-15min.

For the tartar sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons of greek or natural yoghurt
  • 2 small pickled gherkins, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped capers
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped cucumber
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Black pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients together and serve with your fish and chips! Add a portion of your favourite greens to complete the meal.
