The tartness of lemon is a classic flavour profile to pair with fish. In this recipe, lemon zest and thyme are mixed into the crumb that coats the hake for a herby, zesty and rich finish.

  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve and peel the onion, then cut each half into 3 wedges.
  • Pop the butternut squash and onion onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil and half the thyme. Season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. 
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the middle shelf until soft and golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.
  • Meanwhile, zest and halve the lemon.
  • In a medium bowl mix together the lemon zest, breadcrumbs, remaining thyme and 1 tbsp oil (double for 4p).
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lay the hake onto a lined baking tray. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
  • Spread the mayo over the top of the fish.
  • Spoon on the breadcrumb mixture, pressing it down with the back of the spoon.
  • Drizzle with oil and set aside.
  • When the butternut squash has 15 mins to go, pop the hake on the top shelf of the oven and bake for 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle. 
  • To make the crumb more golden, turn your oven to the grill setting for the last 3-5 mins.
  • Place a medium pan over high heat (no oil).
  • Trim the courgette, chop lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm wide chips. 
  • When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 6-8 mins.
  • Turn only every few minutes—this will allow the courgette to pick up a nice colour.
  • Once cooked, season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Divide the charred courgette chips and roast butternut squash between plates.
  • Serve the golden hake alongside.
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
