Hake is a meaty flavorful white fish. I like to make a soup with vegetable or chicken broth. Fish becomes flaky and absorbs the moisture from the vegetables. Usually add fresh tomatoes, peas, broccoli, red or vidalia onion. Any veggies that hold up to broth and appeal to you will do. There is really no measuring, it’s about the proportions and servings you need.
Today I’ll use 1 box Pacific organic vegetable broth, 1 1b. Hake filet, a handful of fresh peas, one head of broccoli florets, 8 halved yellow cherry tomatoes. Add ground black pepper, a few red pepper flakes, a dash of oregano. Boil then simmer until vegetables are tender.
Great for lunch. Or, for dinner with a crusty bread. If you want a heartier meal, can add noodles or rice until tender, then add fish and veggies. Even better, a package of Butoni wild mushroom agnolotti.
