Herb crusted river cobbler with sweet potato chips


As my body has developed this bad habit of waking up at 4 am and been unable to go back to sleep I thought I’ll use this 2 hours before I actually need to prep for work to do something tangible; like updating the blog ;).


I really wished I had a big story to accompany this meal 🙂 but unfortunately I don’t :).  It was another one of my meals that I made as I went along but on the plus side I am super excited because my photography skills are definitely improving.


Anyways back to this meal 🙂

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes 
Serves: 4



4 medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled, washed and cut into chip sizes
1 tablespoon ginger and garlic paste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Black pepper
Chilli flakes
4 x 180g smoked river cobbler fillet
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
Bunch of parsley,  finely chopped
3 mixed peppers, thinly sliced length wise



Place the cut potatoes in a bowl, add ginger and garlic paste, 1/2 olive oil, black pepper, chilli flakes and salt. Mix and cover in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

Place the fish on a lined oven tray. Brush surface with the remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. In a bowl mix the breadcrumbs and parsley and pat it onto the fish. Sprinkle chilli flakes on it.
