BBQ Hake

With the bank holiday weekend and the Newlyn Fish Festival coming up we thought we’d share this quick and easy fishy BBQ recipe with you. Plus, if you fancy getting your hands on £100 worth of ethically sourced Cornish seafood vouchers from our good friends Fish For Thought, make sure you enter our competition.

200g of hake fillet per person
1 lemon
Salt and pepper
White wine
Bay leaves
Veggies of your choice
Fresh herbs such as parsley, dill, basil or thyme
Chopped fresh chilli

1. Each piece of fish will need a piece of foil large enough to wrap and seal the fish like a small parcel. Season the fish on both sides and place on the foil skin side down.
2. Grate some lemon zest onto of each piece of fish.
3. Finely slice 2 gloves of garlic and put the slices on top of the fish.
4. Put a generous knob of butter on top of the fish, plus a couple of slices of lemon.
5. Chop some veggies (cherry tomatoes, red onion, peppers, mushrooms, fennel, baby leeks, courgette….the choice is yours!), add to the parcel and sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs and chilli
6. Bend the sides of the foil up and pour a splash of dry white wine into the parcel.
7. Drop in the bay leaf and seal the parcel closed.
8. Put on the BBQ or in the oven on 200 degrees for 15 minutes.
9. Serve in the pouch with BBQ jacket spuds, wedges or crusty bread and fresh salad leaves.

Thanks to our friends at Fish For Thought for the yummy recipe.
