Zest and juice 1 lemon
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. olive oil

1. Heat oven to 180C. Pour the beaten egg into a shallow dish. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Mix the lemon zest into the breadcrumbs along with the oregano and some salt and pepper.
2. Brush a non-stick baking sheet with half the oil. Dip the fish strips into the egg, and then roll them in the breadcrumbs. Transfer to the baking sheet and bake for 20 mins until golden.
3. Meanwhile, mix the mayo with a squeeze of lemon juice (Otherwise use tomato sauce). Toss the spinach leaves and peas with a squeeze more lemon juice and the remaining oil. Serve the fish fingers with the spinach and peas and a spoonful of the lemony mayo, or tomato sauce.
