Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Pan with Lid


Roast the Sweet Potato
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the sweet potato lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm fries (peeling optional).
  • Pop onto a lined baking tray.
  • Toss with saltpepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. Sweet potato fries require space to achieve a crispy finish.

Get Prepped
  • Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Zest the lemon. Cut half into thick wedges and juice the rest.
  • Trim the tip of the broccoli. Cut head into small florets and stem into 2cm pieces.
  • Pat the hake dry with kitchen paper. Season with salt and pepper.
Make the Sauce
  • Place a pot over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • When the butter has melted, stir in 1 tsp flour (double for 4p).
  • Add the stock, mustard and 75ml water (double for 4p). Bring to the boil and allow to reduce, 2-3 mins. 
  • Remove from the heat. Mix in the honey, lemon zest and 1 tbsp lemon juice (double for 4p).
  • Taste and season with salt, pepper and more lemon juice if desired. Gently reheat just before serving.
Cook the Broccoli
  • Place a pan over a high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the broccoli and fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins.
  • Stir in the garlic, lower the heat to medium and cook until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil.
  • Cook until the broccoli is tender, 4-5 mins. Remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Fry the Fish
  • Return the pan to a medium-high heat with another drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, lay the hake fillets into the pan and fry until cooked through, 4-5 mins on each side. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish. Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Dish Up
  • Plate up your pan-fried hake fillets.
  • Serve broccoli and sweet potato fries alongside.
  • Drizzle over the lemon mustard sauce.
  • Keep any remaining lemon wedges for squeezing over.
