Slice the whiting fillet into 2 by 6 cm fish sticks.
Combine flour with salt and pepper in one deep dish.
Beat the egg in a second deep dish.
Combine the breadcrumbs with the finely ground spice cake in a third deep dish.
Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Dredge the fish sticks through the flour, the egg mixture and the breadcrumbs.
Pre-heat frying oil in a deep pot or pan and fry the home-made fish sticks carefully until they are a nice golden-brown.
Drain on paper towels.
Meanwhile, boil the celeriac until it’s soft, and put the potatoes on to boil.
Combine the potatoes and celeriac when they are tender.
Puree the mixture and season with nutmeg.
Serve the celeriac mash with the fish sticks, with a delicious tartar sauce.
