This time we split the fish up a bit and ended up with fish fingers (goujons if you want to be posh). On the plate there is 100g of cod, and with the breadcrumbs that's around 160 calories. The oven chips were around 250 calories.
We had a thick slice of bread and butter, and some good old frozen peas (what would we do without them). The whole meal was under 600 calories.
This same meal at the fish and chip shop would cost around 800 calories. We were going to pick some up, but decided that as today was a 'good' day, we would make our own.
CHIPS. We used 500g of Estima potatoes, and cut them into chips. These were then microwaved for one minute, just to start the cooking process. Then we coated them in a couple of teaspoons of oil and put them in the oven for around 40 mins on about 200 degrees C.
COD. Remove skin and coat with a light dusting of flour. Dip in egg, then fresh breadcrumbs and spray lightly with oil. The fish took about 10 minutes to cook in the oven at around 180ºC.

REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - and we like to post our main meals to show you what we are eating. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go!
