  • 1. Preheat oven to 240°C (220°C fan-forced). Line two large baking trays with baking paper.

  • 2. Place pumpkin and potatoes in a large bowl. Add oil and toss to coat. Spread over one of the prepared trays. Bake for 10 minutes, turn, then bake for another 10 minutes or until golden and tender.

  • 3. Meanwhile, place cornflakes in a blender and process until they resemble breadcrumbs. Pour into a shallow bowl. Pour egg whites into a separate shallow bowl.

  • 4. Dip each fish fillet into egg, then cornflake crumbs. Place on remaining prepared tray. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden and cooked.

  • 5. Meanwhile, cook beans over a high heat in a medium-sized saucepan of boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until just tender. Drain and season to taste.

  • 6. To make the dipping sauce, whisk sweet chilli sauce and mayonnaise in a bowl.

  • 7. To serve, place vegetables on a large platter with fish placed on top and chilli mayonnaise on the side.

  • Tip:

  • If you have cornflakes that have gone stale, toast them in oven to give them back their crunch.
