    Fish and chips is right up there with chocolate cake and red wine when it comes to slightly guilty but very indulgent pleasures. When planning something just a little more elegant though, it might not exactly be the best placed dish. Unless, that is, we make it into something a little more special. Fish and chips with an upmarket twist served with a chilled glass of white wine.

    Now, this could just as well be made with a white fish like cod or haddock (this would reduce the cooking times), but why not take it a step further and go with salmon? With the crunchy breadcrumbs, fresh parsley, lemon and butter, and served with roasted baby potatoes, this dish will not only wow any guest, but is also just a bit healthier than the traditional version.

    Here's what you'll need...

    2 salmon side filets
    40g breadcrumbs
    10g finely chopped parsley
    Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    Salt & Pepper
    2tbsp olive oil
    60g butter
    400g baby new potatoes, unpeeled and quartered

    Set Oven Temp: 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6

    Here's how it's done...

    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 200C

    Start by boiling the potatoes for 5 minutes in water

    Step 2

    Once done, drain the potatoes

    Put them into a large bowl, add 1tbsp of olive oil and some salt

    Toss the potatoes until they’re all coated in oil

    Put them into a baking dish and place into the preheated oven for 20 minutes

    Step 3

    In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, parsley and lemon zest

    Step 4

    Now season the salmon generously with salt and pepper

    Step 5

    Heat a frying pan over a high heat with 1tbsp of olive oil

    Place the salmon filets skin up into the pan and fry for 2 minutes

    Turn the filets around and fry for another 2 minutes

    Step 6

    Preheat your grill on a high heat

    Now top the filets with the breadcrumb mix

    Now add little dots of butter on top of it

    Step 7

    Place the pan under the grill and and fry for 7 minutes until the crumbs are slightly golden

    Add the remaining butter and the lemon juice and return to the grill for another two minutes

    Step 8

    Serve straight away with the roast chips from the oven
