  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 medium white fish fillets, skinless (or 8 small firm white fish fillets)
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice (plus lemon wedges for serving)
  • 24 ounce package frozen fries
  • 1/3 cup finely grated parmesan


  • Mix together the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, parsley, dill, salt and olive oil. Line a baking sheet with parchment and place fish on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top of the fish, then drizzle with lemon juice and season with extra salt.
  • Heat oven to 400ºF and center two racks. Cook fries according to package directions.
  • When the fries have about 10 minutes left, add the fish to the lower rack in the oven. Remove fries when done, but continue to cook fish until just cooked through, about 15 minutes total. Remove from oven and heat broiler.
  • Place fish under broiler about 1 minute until breadcrumbs are browned and crisp. Toss fries with Parmesan and serve with fish, lemon wedges and tartar sauce on the side.
