Pot with Lid


Get Prepped
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Zest and juice half the lemon (double for 4p).
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
  • Chop the tomato into 2cm chunks.
Roast the Veg
  • Trim the aubergine then cut into 2cm pieces.
  • Trim the courgette then quarter lengthways. Cut each quarter widthways into thirds to make batons.
  • Pop the aubergine and courgette onto a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with harissa spice mix, salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until the veg is softened and golden, 20-25 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.
Make the Bulgur
  • Meanwhile, place a pot over medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the garlic and fry for 1 min.
  • Pour in 240ml water (double for 4p) along with the stock and bring to the boil.
  • Stir in the bulgur, bring back up to the boil and simmer for 1 min.
  • Pop a lid on the pot and remove from the heat. Leave to the side for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Mix the Dressing
  • While the bulgur boils, add 1½ tbsp oil and 1 tsp of lemon juice (double both for 4p) to a medium bowl.
  • Stir through the chopped parsley.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix well and set aside.

TIP: Add more lemon juice if you feel it needs it!

Fry the Fish
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Pat the fish dry with kitchen paper. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Once hot, lay the hake fillets into the pan and cook for 4-5 mins.
  • Turn over and cook for a further 4-5 mins on the other side. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish. Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Finish and Serve
  • When everything is ready, fluff up the bulgur with a fork.
  • Stir through the tomatoesauberginecourgette and lemon zest. 
  • Taste then season with salt, pepper and more lemon juice if desired.
  • Share the bulgur between your plates, then top with the hake.
  • Finish with a generous drizzle of the parsley dressing.
