Instructions

Cut the hake fillets into portions, drizzle in olive oil and add a pinch of sea salt and a dust of white pepper. Roast in a hot oven for 7-10 minutes depending on size.

Remove from the oven, top with a little delicious roasted tomato and basil sauce.

Sauce

Roughly chop the onions, celery, ripe vine tomatoes, red peppers and garlic.

Place all ingredients into a baking tray, add a good teaspoon of tomato puree and roast in the oven for around 20 minutes until tender.

Once cooked, remove the roasted vegetables and liquidise in a blender or food processor

To thin the sauce down in the blender, add some fish stock (or hot water mixed with a fish stock cube).

Strain through a fine sieve and into a sauce pan. Add some torn leaves of fresh basil just before serving. Serve with lettuce if you wish.
