A little bit about this product

Ensure you stay well stocked with fish by purchasing a box of our Hake fillets. They come in a pack containing twelve large fillets with each individual fillet weighing between **g and **g. Our Hake have been deep frozen as early as possible to ensure they retain their delicate flavour and texture. Hake are a deep sea fish closely related to the cod family. They are a mild fish, flaky in texture and with a more subtle flavour than cod. This fish is extremely popular in countries like Portugal and Spain. In France they are often referred to as ‘Saumon Blanc’ (White Salmon). Various types of hake are commonly caught in the both the Atlantic and the North Pacific. In the Ocean this fish has a soft skin that is iron-grey in colour with a silver-white belly.

Preparation & serving suggestions

Our hake fillets require very little preparation as they are completely skinless and the bones have been removed. Checking for any remaining pin-bones that have been missed is advised. This fish is usually grilled, pan-fried or baked. When raw the flesh is naturally very soft, but once cooked it becomes firm and meaty. Hake is great served with a variety of starchy foods such as pasta, rice, or quinoa. Hake also goes well with a variety of vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, bell peppers, and tomatoes. These can be roasted, steamed, or sautéed to complement the fish. If serving with a side salad greens like arugula, spinach, or frisee lettuce are perfect. Hake also takes robust flavours such as lemon, tomatoes, chorizo and garlic well. The freshness of a lemon pairs well with its mild taste and minced garlic could be added to a marinade before cooking or used in a sauce.

This product pairs well with

Spices like paprika, cumin and cayenne can bring heat and depth of flavor to the fish. Fresh herbs like parsley, dill, and thyme are also great to season the fish before cooking, or just added as a garnish afterwards. The delicate and subtle flavor of White wine can be used to make a sauce to serve with the fish or it can be added to a marinade before cooking. When choosing a wine to drink, hake pairs well with light-bodied White wines such as Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc. These wines have a crisp and refreshing quality that can balance the fish’s rich, oily texture. If cooking with butter then another good option is Chardonnay as the wine’s creamy texture will compliment the butter. The lower tannin content of wines like Gamay,  Pinot Noir, and red Burgundy will also not overpower the delicate taste of the fish when opting for Red wine.
