A few coriander leaves, to serve

Curry sauce, to serve, optional


  1. Cook the Donegal Catch Breaded Cod Fillet and Green Isle frozen chips according to the packet instructions.
  2. Heat the oil in a large wok or deep sided frying pan and once hot add the onion and green pepper and stir-fry for 4 -5 minutes over a medium-high heat until the vegetables are cooked but not coloured.
