Baked Fish and Chips – Healthier Choice

There are a few versions of Fish and Chips, that I absolutely adore.  My Crumbed fish and chips for example, which my kids love. It is darker and more seasoned with a special jalapeño sauce marinade. This baked version however, is made more simplified. Seasoned very lightly, and baked so that it’s healthier. And it’s still so yummy! I make this when I am pressed for time. If making home made fries, make sure to soak the cut fries in water before baking. I love using my new crinkle cutter!
