Soft and mild fresh hake portions ready for cooking
2 Portions – Boneless 300g
Hake is a very underrated fish. It comes from the same family as cod & haddock and equally as versatile. The Spanish are big fans of hake and the average annual consumption there is over 6kgs per person!
Hake flakes are smaller and more delicate than cod, but they have a slightly sweeter taste. Wild stocks of hake are very healthy now so it is also a very sustainable option too.
