Hake really is a special fish. If you want a great tasting, great value fish that has some of the best sustainability credentials around then choose hake. It's in abundance in local waters and ours comes from an MSC accredited fishery. It's such a versatile fish to cook and has a delicate, fine texture when raw, but turns quickly to a firmer more meaty flake when cooked. Flavour wise, it’s sweet and delicate so pairs well with other stronger flavours such as chorizo. Hake is so similar in taste to cod that it makes the perfect fish to try as an alternative for your cod recipes and at the same time means your supporting one of the best local, sustainable fisheries there is.
Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
