Hake

A member of the cod family with a delicate flavour and texture. One of our customers had a whole baked hake for Christmas and said it was "outstanding".
Description

Our hake comes Cornwall where all the best hake comes from. Hake has a soft texture and a flavour all of its own - more subtle than cod. In France, hake is called saumon blanc or white salmon, and Americans call it ling or whiting, not to be confused with our own ling and whiting.

We've enjoyed a simple recipe for baked whole hake.  If you order this - 1kg - it will come cleaned, with its head on, and serve 6.  Set your oven to 180°C.  Lay the hake in a baking dish on its side and slash it nearly to the backbone four times.  Put chopped parsley, some very thinly sliced garlic and some olive oil into each cut, finish off with a fairly thick slice of lemon pushed into the cut.  Bake for about 30 minutes, then serve with some melted butter, and ideally, with new potatoes.  You can't go wrong with this!
