Option C - Cornish Crab & Roast Tomato Soup followed by Hake & Spanish-style Chorizo Potatoes

From £45.00 Per Meal for Two

This gorgeous soup, with its luxuriantly silky tomato base and boasting a depth of flavour highlighting the sweetness of the crab, and undercut with a little heat, is the perfect way to start a superior seafood meal. Bursting with taste, and simplicity itself to prepare, each pouch contains 400g of soup, (frozen). Simply defrost, warm through and serve with some nice crusty bread. Heaven!

This is a refreshed take on hake for springtime feasting. Our chefs have taken chunky portions of this super-sustainable alterative to cod and paired the meaty white texture with the vibrant colours of Spanish-style cooking. Our chefs have combined tasty, crisped cubes of Cornish potatoes with rich chorizo, cherry tomatoes, roast peppers and smoked paprika, cumin and chilli for a bright, Mediterranean-feel, flavour-packed dish.

The fresh and crisp rocket salad with balsamic dressing adds the perfect foil to all that richness. Perfect with a good red rioja - seriously – give it a go!

Cornish Hake & Spanish-style Chorizo Potatoes Method:

Defrost the Hake.
Preheat your oven to 210C, place the Parmentier potatoes into a deep baking tray and cook for 12-15 minutes in the centre of the oven, until golden and crispy.
In the meantime, preheat a non-stick frying pan. Lightly oil and season the Hake portions and place them into the pan skin side down, cook for 7-8 minutes on a medium-high heat. The Hake should be golden brown in colour on the skin. Flip over and cook for a further 2 minutes and remove from the pan.
Once the potatoes are crispy, add the Spanish Salsa to the baking try and mix. Cook for a further 2 minutes.
*To serve, divide the Spanish potatoes between 2 plates and place the Hake fillet on top. Toss the rocket salad leaves with the balsamic dressing and serve on the side.

Sustainability & Provenance

Cornish Brown Crab stocks are healthy, and all of the crab that we source is pot-caught, which is one of the most sustainable methods of fishing. It is both low impact and very selective, and it allows for undersized and berried females to be returned to the water unharmed. Read more

Customer reviews

Dear FFT, you have a new fan!

Thank you. Had two orders last week. One for me and the other was a birthday present for my cousin Pamela. She called me to tell me that the crab was the sweetest most succulent she had ever eaten! Phoned the next day to say the same about the kippers and  then sent pictures on Facebook to show the fish which she had cooked with  black butter!

Top marks!

You are probably aware that I am in receipt of my fish order from you. Really impressed by the way everything was beautifully packed. Looking forward to sampling the Dressed Crab and Cocktail Claws, and of course the Provencal Fish Stew. Thank you.

Agnes Mahoney, Essex


Delighted to receive our combination box on time and it is always exciting to open it and to plan a few menus using the delicious sauces. Homemade fish pie tonight! Delighted to see that you are moving towards ready cooked meals and the crab bake was great for lunch for a single person. We will be repeating that order and I would have thought there was a big market for you in these products, particularly single portions for OAPs who want something to pop into the Aga. Freezer well stocked now!
