Hake in herby breadcrumbs is a fairly simple way of serving hake, or any other white fish. It has a nice crunchy texture and subtle flavours from the herbs and pine nuts. It's easily scalable. The details here are for two servings.


Breadcrumb mixEdit


  • 2 fillets of hake (about 100g each)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
  2. Mix together the breadcrumb ingredients in a food processor, adding the oil last. It should be a slightly moist mixture.
  3. Dip each hake fillet in beaten egg, then in the breadcrumb mix. Try to get the fillet evenly coated.
  4. Place each fillet in a gratin dish, drizzling a little oil on top.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the breadcrumbs are browned.
  6. Sprinkle some lemon juice on top.
  7. Serve with a dressed salad.
