If you were looking for a simple and effective way to turn that lonely hake fillet in your fridge into a tasty and joyous meal, then you are in the right place!
With a few quick steps, we will show you how to make a delicious oven-baked hake fillet crusted in herbs and spices
Crusted you say? Don't you mean battered, or breaded?
Well, no, awesome you. The beauty of this dish is that it requires no butter, milk, eggs or frying oils. Just lay a mixture of breadcrumbs, herbs, and spices on top of the fillet and bake it in the oven.
You'll get a sharp contrast between the grainy texture of the crust and the tenderness of the hake. This will enhance the delicate fish flavour rather than masking it under layers of batter and frying oils.
Our spicy topping also makes the recipe suitable to those beautiful, yet unlucky souls* that are allergic to eggs! A win-win for everyone.
So without further ado, let's get cooking!
