Baking tray, weighing scales, measuring spoons, knife, chopping board, plate, cling film, grater/zester, small plastic bag, shallow bowl, fork, 2 small plates, oven gloves.



  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC or gas mark 6.
  2. Grease or line a baking tray.
  3. Cut the coley into finger-sized pieces. Cover and put in the fridge.
  4. Zest the lemon.

  6. Beat the egg in a shallow bowl. Spread the flour on a plate.
  7. Toss each piece of fish in the flour. Then dunk in the egg and roll in the crumbs. Place on the baking sheet and continue with remaining fish.

  9. To make the dip, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Serve with the coley goujons.

Top tips:

  • Try different fish such as salmon or haddock.
  • Add pesto or garlic to the egg instead of lemon and herbs to the corn flakes.
  • Use breadcrumbs instead of corn flakes.
  • For something different, use slices of avocado instead of fish. Cook in the same way.
