Pan fried hake with a crab and prawn croquette, and a saffron and mussel sauce recipe:
Hake are round fish caught from all around the UK. MSC certified hake is also available. The fish tend to be at their most abundant in the months from March to October. The yield of a hake can be approximately 50%.
Hake has an uncomplicated, subtle taste, combining the flavour of cream with a hint of salt. The texture of the flesh is delicate and the skin is easy to eat.
For more information on hake visit our fish glossary section.
