Pesto Crusted Hake

Pesto Crusted Hake

with parsley butter potatoes and radish salad

The buttery herby baby potatoes and crunchy radish salad in this dish are a delight in their own right, but the star of the show in this recipe is most certainly the pesto crusted baked hake topped with a moreish mayo drizzle.

Instructions

Boil the Potatoes
1
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Boil a large pot of salted water.
  • Halve the potatoes (quarter larger pieces). Roughly chop the parsley.
  • When the water is boiling, add the potatoes, lower the heat to medium and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins.
  • Drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat. Stir through a knob of butter along with the parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Coat the Fish
2
  • Meanwhile, pat the hake dry with kitchen paper. 
  • Arrange the hake on a lined baking tray. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
  • Spread the pesto evenly over the tops of the hake fillets.
  • Season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon equal amounts of the breadcrumbs onto each fillet. Press down firmly with the back of the spoon to ensure it adheres.
Cook the Fish
3
  • Place the hake on the top shelf of the oven.
  • Bake until the breadcrumbs are golden and the fish is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
  • Meanwhile, trim and quarter the radish.
  • Just before serving, toss the radish and salad leaves with a drizzle of oil.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Finish and Serve
4
  • Divide the pesto crumbed hake fillets between plates, adding a dollop of mayo to the top of each.
  • Serve the radish salad and parsley butter potatoes alongside.
  • Finish the salad with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
