Syn Free Fish And Chips | Slimming World Recipe

If you are anything like me.. you will be craving a perfect plate of good old fashioned British fish and chips. Unfortunately fried fish and greasy chips are not particularly Slimming World friendly so i was craving for an alternative.

I have perfected my KFC fakeaway coating now so i thought that style would be perfect for a good bit of fish. Let me share the recipe for you guys πŸ™‚

Enjoy xx

Ingredients: (serves 2)

For the fish:


  • 2 x skinless boneless cod fillets (or any fish you like)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of parsley
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 clove garlic (or 1tsp lazy garlic)
  • 150g of plain (syn free) couscous
  • 2 x medium eggs
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Boiling water


  • Add couscous into a mixing bowl. Mix together with paprika, lemon juice, parsley, basil, mustard powder, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Cover with boiling water, cover and stand for 5 minutes.
  • Beat 2 eggs and add to the mixture. Mix to a smooth consistency and use to coat the fish.

Place on grease proof paper in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes on 200c.

For the wedges:


  • 4 large potatoes (I like to use maris pipers)
  • Fry light spray
  • Salt and pepper
  • Paprika


  • Cut potatoes into thick wedges, par boil for 5 minutes.
  • Place onto a baking tray and spray with fry light. Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes on 200c.

Serve with syn free mushy peas to complete the meal.
