Step 1

Preheat the oven to gas mark 6.

Step 2

Peel the potatoes, chop into small chunks and set them in a pan of boiling water for about 15 minutes until tender.

Step 3

Whilst the potatoes are cooking mix the fish seasoning, polenta and breadcrumbs in a plate or bowl. Cut the fish into small, relatively regular shapes and then dip each piece in the beaten egg.

Step 4

Lift the fish out of the egg and roll it in the breadcrumb mixture until completely coated. Place on a baking tray (which has been lined with greaseproof paper otherwise it'll stick!), spray with olive oil spray/drizzle over oil and then cook for 15 minutes in the oven. Turn over half way through cooking.

Step 5

When the potatoes are cooked drain them and then mash. Mix in the butter, cheese and a sprinkle of the parsley. Add enough milk to get to the consistency that you want.

Step 6

Serve with any vegetables that you want (I just used frozen mixed veg) and enjoy! :D
