The picture of this recent meal looked so good that it spontaneously morphed into a post.
Hake is from the cod family but in many ways (and certainly in the eyes of the Spanish) considered to be the superior cousin. Weird then that in many ways that we don’t eat more hake in the UK and export most of it to the continent. Easy to fillet with a large central bone structure and beautiful milky-pink flesh, it’s a delight to eat, especially with crispy skin.
This hake is specifically a shout-out to our friends at FreshRange (here is a link to our affiliated store) and sourced from Samways Fish Merchants on the Dorset coast. It arrived beautiful and fresh.
