Fish & Chips... straight from the freezer

I am really a very lazy cook. Especially when my husband is not home for dinner...
Tonight is raid the freezer night.
And the freezer delivered fish and chips, just pop it into the oven.
It will be ready in 20 minutes and served with a side salad.
Sounds pretty good to me.

1. Oven baked frozen fish - any kind and as many pieces as you want, I will be having only one piece tonight and not only is it a crumbed fish fillet but there is also a tomato and mozzarella sauce inside.
2. Oven baked chips - a handful or two should be enough. I prefer 'Oma Frites' since they are quite chunky.
3. The usual suspects for a side salad. Lettuce, tomato, some green olives which I found in the fridge, half a red onion and anything else you feel like adding.

You might have noticed that capsicum (a.k.a red / green / yellow peppers or in the Netherlands known as paprika) is absent from most meals I make. It is quite deliberate.
I don't like them, thus I don't eat them.
However, that does not stop you from enjoying them in your salad or with your meal.

Switch on the oven to about 220 degrees Celsius (or as per the instructions on the packaging).
Place the fish and chips in an oven dish and bake for 15 -20 minutes.
While the oven is doing the hard work, take out a sharp knife and make a salad.
Season and serve with the fish and chips once it comes out of the oven.

Note - do be careful with sharp knives. I have been watching Masterchef Australia and couldn't believe how many of the contestants cut themselves accidentally!
Easy does it.
