Hake steak with rosemary and garlic butter.

On Monday night I fancied a bit of fish and they had Cornish Hake as a special offer on special offer on the fish counter at Sainsbury’s. So I bought a steak. It was nice and round and probably about an inch and a half thick. I decided to bake it in the oven, quite simply, for about 20 minutes or so. In fact this whole recipe is so simple it seems a bit patronising typing it up – as if you couldn’t think of it yourself!

Anyway, here goes,

1 hake steak
4 sprigs of rosemary
A generous knob of garlic butter
Freshly ground sea salt and black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200.

Place the hake steak on a piece of tin foil and season well with salt and black pepper. Place a knob of garlic butter on top of the hake. Wrap four sprigs of fresh rosemary around the skin of the fish and close up the foil parcel.

Place on a metal baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. After 15 minutes open up the foil of the parcel a little for the last 10 minutes.

Pour the garlicy, buttery fish juices that have collected in the foil over the served fish.

I served this with roasted asparagus and vine tomatoes, boiled mini-new potatoes and mascarpone peas. Tasty!
