A plate of fish and chips is quintessentially British. Found at most pubs, the dish includes a gorgeous fillet of fish, often haddock, deep-fried to golden perfection and served with thick-cut fries (aka chips), and peas. In this sheet-pan version of fish and chips, you can achieve peak crispiness with a dusting of seasoned panko breadcrumbs. Then elevate frozen peas with a sprinkle of lemon zest, and bake up potato wedges for weeknight ease. Malt vinegar is a classic condiment for fish and chips, but a lemon wedge works great too!


  • 1 ½ pounds russet potatoes (3 small potatoes), cut into 1/2-in. wedges

  • ¼ cup olive oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • cup panko

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 ½ teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 lemon), divided, plus lemon wedges for serving

  • 4 6-oz. skinless cod fillets

  • 2 cups frozen sweet peas

  • Malt vinegar, for serving (optional)

  • Finely chopped parsley, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread in an even layer and roast for 25 minutes.

  2. Combine panko, butter, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl. Season cod with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  3. Push potatoes to side of baking sheet; add cod. Drizzle cod with 1 tablespoon oil and top with panko mixture. Roast until potatoes and fish are golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  4. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high. Add peas; cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with cod, potatoes, lemon wedges, and malt vinegar, if using. Top with parsley.
