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
Since the introduction of a Hake Recovery Plan in the late 1990s, fishing for Hake was strictly controlled and now, I am delighted to say, that stocks are far larger than they have been for many years. The recovery has been so marked, that in 2015 the Cornish Hake gill net fishery was certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council Read more
Freshness of the Sea
Hi Paul & Team Thank you all so much for the Valentines Hamper Special! It arrived: on time, in perfect condition and filled the kitchen with the freshness of the sea! We enjoyed it all but especially the beautiful impressive lobster - most flavoursome we've ever eaten this side of the Tamar! A real delicious treat and terrific surprise for my husband Alan! All the best to you and hope these storms abate soon and are not causing you too much havoc! Saw pictures of Fore Street, Fowey flooded!

Xmas Buffet Box
Just to say a big thank you to you and the team for the bumper Xmas buffet box, which arrived on time (as always) this morning. Oysters on the menu tonight! The rest has been put to the back of the fridge or frozen for a festive gathering we’re planning with close friends and neighbours on the 28th December. Lucky them, lucky us! Love the tea-towel, too!
