    • Vegetable oil, for greasing
    • 1 egg white
    • 25g plain flour
    • 100g golden breadcrumbs
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 x 125-150g frozen fillets wild Alaska Pacific cod, thawed
    • Lemon wedges, to serve


    • Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, gas mark 5. Grease two baking sheets with a little vegetable oil

    • Beat the egg white with 2 tbsp of cold water until lightly foamy. Sprinkle the flour and breadcrumbs onto separate plates, seasoning the flour with salt and pepper

    • Lightly coat the cod fillets in seasoned flour, then dip them into the egg white. Coat them in breadcrumbs, then arrange on the baking sheets

    • Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Check that the fish is cooked – the flesh should be opaque and flake easily. Serve with lemon wedges

    Top tip for making Baked cod in breadcrumbs
