Fish goujons are so easy to make! The added spice makes these ones extra tasty and the carbonation in the sparkling water or beer makes them light. Feel free to substitute any firm white fish for the cod.


  1. Carefully cut the fish into thin slices. Dispense 50g of the plain flour into a bowl and use it to coat the goujons.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 140g flour, spices, and beer/sparkling water. Whisk until no lumps remain.
  3. Heat a deep fat fryer to 180°c. Dip each of the flour coated goujons into the batter mix and carefully place straight into the fryer, with the basket down. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the batter is crisp and bubbly.
  4. Place the fish on a sheet of kitchen paper to remove any excess grease. Serve with a fresh summer salad.
