Place Parmesan into Thermomix bowl and grate 10 sec/speed 10.


Add polenta, spices and salt to Thermomix bowl and mix 5 sec/ speed 5. Tip mixture onto a plate.


Cut fish into large bite sized pieces.


Heat fry pan over medium heat. Add a 1cm deep layer of oil to the pan.


Coat fish well in beaten egg, followed by polenta mix. Fry fish bites for 3–4 minutes each side (depending on the thickness of the fish) until golden brown. Test a piece of fish to ensure it is cooked through, remembering it will continue to cook a little further once taken off the heat. Place cooked fish on a cooling rack over some paper towel to rest while you continue to cook the remaining fish bites.


Sprinkle with additional salt and serve with Simple Mayonnaise or Aioli.


Alternatively, these can be cooked in the Air Fryer. Drizzle with EVOO and cook for 8 minutes at 200.
