Method

 
Cut the fish into bite sized cubes.

Combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan, zest, parsley and seasoning.

Coat with seasoned flour, egg and lastly lots of crumbs. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the aioli: Place the yolk, garlic, lemon juice and seasoning into a blender. Blitz together until well combined, then slowly add the oil through the funnel blending all the while until light in colour and thickened. Set aside.

Heat a pot of oil. When oil is hot enough, fry the goujons until golden and crispy – should take 4 minutes. Place on paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Serve with garlic aioli, lemon wedges and root veggie crisps.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
