Low Syn Monk Fish Bites with Tartar Sauce | Slimming World


There is something very indulgent about these Low Syn Monk Fish Bites with Tartar Sauce.

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Monk fish is pretty pricey, but being a girl who loves a bargain, I managed to find a huge monk fish tail in the reduced section at the supermarket last week  and came up with these delicious morsels!


They would work with any white fish, so long as it has a firm texture.

Tartar sauce is an absolute favourite of mine, and this recipe is super quick to make and low in syns. Make sure all the ingredients are finely chopped before mixing them to make the perfect dipping sauce.


The fish bites use half your Healthy Extra B allowance (or 3 syns) plus half a syn per portion for the cornflour. The tartar sauce is worth 2 syns for the whole lot.


I love to use my Brevile Halo for everything possible. These Low Syn Monk Fish Bites cook really well in it. However, they would cook just as well in the oven.

If you do cook in the oven, make sure you place them onto some grease proof paper to avoid them sticking, and spray well with Frylight.

The Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil or the Rapeseed varieties are perfect for these Low Syn Monk Fish Bites with Tartar Sauce.

You may want to try using a 3 in 1 Hand Blender with a chopping attachment for the Tartar Sauce and breadcrumbs, as it will make the job a bit easier. You can pick one up on Amazon.

Monk Fish Bites
  1. Cut the monk fish into 20 bite sized pieces. Blitz the bread into coarse bread crumbs. Place the cornflour into one bowl, and the bread crumbs into another bowl. Beat the egg in another dish.
  2. Dip each piece of fish into the cornflour, then egg then bread crumb and place onto the grill tray in the Halo (or onto a baking tray if using an oven) Cook for 15 minutes until the fish is cooked and crispy (15 minutes in the oven also, set to 180 degrees).
Tartar Sauce
  1. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. If you want your tartar sauce more sharp, add some more of the vinegar from the gerkin jar - you can use white wine vinegar but the pickling liquor has much more flavour!
