Midweek Meals with McCain French Fries

Sometimes you just need a quick, tasty, midweek meal that's easy to get ready and feed the family fast. McCain have got their thinking caps on and have come up with four family friendly recipes, using their oven cooked French Fries as an accompaniment. We were invited to try out one of the recipes and I opted for Crispy Pollock Fish Fingers in Tortilla Salad Wraps.

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 400g fresh pollock fillet cut into 8 strips (we couldn't find pollock so used cod instead)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 100g cornflakes, crushed finely 
  • 4 Tortilla wraps 
  • Dollop of mayonnaise 
  • Salad leaves
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cooked peas
  • 480g bag of McCain French Fries


Preheat your oven to 220°C.
Place the crushed cornflakes in a dish.
Dip each fish strip into the egg and then into the cornflake crumbs to coat the pieces evenly. (I found that the cod strips broke up when I did this so we ended up with cod bites instead of cod fingers)
Place the fish strips on a lightly oiled oven sheet. 

Bake in the oven with the McCain French Fries for approx 15-20 minutes.
When the fish is cooked, take each tortilla wrap and spread with some mayonnaise, salad
leaves, baby tomatoes and a few peas, add two fish fingers to each and make a roll.
Serve with McCain French Fries.

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and, with a preparation and cooking time of less than thirty minutes it was a really easy way to feed my family a tasty meal. I'll definitely be using the cornflake coating again but may try it with chicken next time. The McCain French Fries were tasty and a very easy meal accompaniment. I'd definitely recommend them. Everyone in the family ate the meal well, and Bud especially, ate more vegetables than he ordinarily would! A success on all counts.
