This hake recipe with chorizo is wonderfully delicious and very simple to make, taking up only about half an hour of your time, and for some of that time, you can sit and read a book or watch the telly - or even go on your running machine! - while it cooks
It's a hake recipe based on instructions I found on a BBC Food website, and doesn't it look mouth watering?
Honestly you would think I had shares. I really haven't. It's just that the BBC website never fails to deliver a good recipe that works, so I always go there first.
It began in the supermarket where I found hake steaks on offer and they looked really tasty so I bought a couple. I also just happened to have bought some chorizo that day because I hadn't had chorizo for a while and quite fancied it. So, when I went to the BBC website and found this totally perfect recipe for the ingredients I had to hand, which was perfect so thought I would give it a go.
Serendipitous is the word I think (any excuse to use that wonderful word)
I suppose in the world of real food, chorizo doesn't come anywhere near the top of the list of healthy natural foods, and I don't often buy it. Especially as it is high in salts and nitrates and too much fat, but as the saying goes, a little bit of what you fancy does you good. It certainly does no harm now and again.
Basically what you do is throw some veg and such like stuff in a pan with a little olive oil, then some potatoes and seasoning and chopped chorizo. If you have trouble cutting the chorizo neatly, don't worry you can rip it and tear it a little and it will be just fine. That takes about 10 minutes. Then pop the hake on top for ten minutes more and bob's your uncle! What could be quicker and tastier than that
The original recipe uses hake fillets, but I don't think it really matters if you use steaks like I did, or even another type of white fish - coley even, or Pollock.

Let me know what you think - I want your honest opinion (I can take it), but I personally thought it was knockout gorgeous. The flavours really go well together.
