Method

For the goujons:

Blitz the bread, parsley, curry powder, chilli powder and turmeric in a food processor

Tip into a shallow dish, stir in the sesame seeds and season well

Place the flour on a plate, then beat the egg and milk together in another shallow dish

Toss the whiting in the flour until well coated, shaking off any excess, then dip into the egg mixture and coat in the flavoured breadcrumbs.

Heat a deep-fat fryer to 180°C or half-fill a deep-sided pan with rapeseed oil.

Cook the breaded whiting strips in batches for 3–4 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown.

Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm while you cook the remainder.

For the Mango Salsa:

Place the mango in a bowl and stir in the sweet chilli sauce, rapeseed oil, lime juice and coriander. Season to taste

Cover with cling film and set aside at room temperature until needed. Use as required

For the Chilli Jam:

Heat the rapeseed oil in a heavy-based pan on a medium heat. Add the onions, red peppers and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes, until just beginning to soften.

Stir in the chilli and tomato purée and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the sugar, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce and pour in 300ml (1/2 pint) of water to just cover. Simmer for 45–50 minutes, until well reduced and thickened, stirring occasionally.

Remove the chilli jam from the heat and leave to cool completely, then tip into a food processor or liquidiser and blend to a purée.

Pass through a sieve set over a bowl and season to taste. Transfer to a rigid plastic container and store in the fridge. Use as required.
