  • olive oil

For the fish fingers:

  • 600g fresh white firm fish, skinned, such as cod, haddock or coley

  • large handful of rocket
  • 8 slices of bloomer bread

What you do:

  1. Heat oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Cut the unpeeled potatoes into thick chips. Try and keep them similar shapes and thickness so they cook evenly.

  8. Place the fish fingers on the baking tray and cook for 10 minutes.
  9. Finely chop the rocket and add the mayonnaise.
  10. Griddle or toast the bread. Spread with the rocket mayonnaise and add the fish fingers. Top with another slice of bread.
  11. Stack the chips in a jenga fashion and serve with the fish finger sandwich.
