3 Meanwhile, in a bag, place cornflakes and crush with your hands to form crumbs.
4 In a bowl, combine the 5 dried herbs and spices with parsley, breadcrumbs and cornflakes. Place crumb mix in a wide, shallow dish.
5 In a cup, beat egg and oil. Place in another shallow dish.
6 Dunk fish pieces in the egg mix then in crumbs to coat evenly.
7 Place on the third baking tray and put in oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Turn the vege chips and re-spray while the oven is open. 8 In a small bowl, using a hand blender, pulse corn, pineapple and capsicum until it forms a chunky relish. Season with pepper to taste.
9 Serve fish and fries with relish on the side.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free cornflakes and breadcrumbs and check ground spices are gluten free.
