Swish fish dish sure to im­press

The Advertiser - - BOOMER -

THIS ver­sion of fish and chips is cer­tainly health­ier than the one from your lo­cal fish and chip shop.

Every­thing is oven baked us­ing very lit­tle oil, and the fish and chips are full of flavour and di­etary fi­bre.

Basa is a type of cat­fish that is im­ported from South-East Asia. It’s is high in pro­tein and con­tains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, along with min­er­als like phos­pho­rus, potas­sium and niacin.
