Jim brought back a huge chunk of hake from the fishmongers, and my challenge was to transform it into something delicious.

Here’s how I did it.


  • a massive chunk of hake
  • some sprigs of rosemary
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp thyme, finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • lemon zest
  • basil

Pre-heat the oven to 150C.

Lightly grease a baking tray. Lay the hake in the tray, along with some sprigs of rosemary, tomatoes and lemon segments.

Mix together finely chopped onion, garlic, rosemary and thyme with some olive oil. Then spread it over the fish.

Bake for around 40 minutes.

Garnish with lemon zest and basil.

We had this with brown rice and dressed green beans.
