Pan Fried Hake with Coconut Rice and Asparagus Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium sized hake fillets (about 5 ounces each)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 5 to 6 ripe vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 5 to 6 asparagus tips
  • Cooking oil (I use rapeseed oil)
  • Coconut Rice (see the recipe below)
How to cook Pan Fried Hake with Coconut Rice and Asparagus:
  • Heat a frying pan on a high heat and add a glug of oil and the salted butter. The reason for adding both butter and oil is so that the butter doesn't burn.
  • Add the hake fillets, skin side down, along with the garlic, asparagus and tomatoes.
  • Fry the fish for between 10 to 12 minutes, regularly pouring the butter/oil over the top of the fish using a spoon. (Don't flip the fish over, just keep it skin-side down and you'll get a lovely crispy skin at the end.)
  • Lay the fried hake on a plate scattering the tomatoes across the plate and crossing a couple of asparagus over the top and serve the coconut rice.

Coconut Rice Recipe

Coconut Rice Ingredients:
  • 4 ounces long grain rice rice (I used basmatic)
  • 7 ounces water
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • Salt to taste
How to cook Coconut Rice:
  • Bring water to the boil in a small saucepan and add a pinch of salt.
  • Add the creamy part of the coconut milk (don't use the liquid) and then add the rice.
  • Cover the pan and leave to for around 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.

Comment(s):

Hake is a really meaty fish that’s readily available in most major supermarkets. It’s a white fish and tastes similar to cod but with more of a flaky texture. This makes it really versatile for cooking.
