I was happy to learn a different method of cooking hake and I have to say the fish tastes great. The recipe is very simple and straight forward and the measurements were very open to variation, so feel free to add or reduce the amount on any of the ingredients.
Tasty fried hake fish strips to enjoy with your favorite veggies and maybe a glass of wine.

My husband would be THRILLED if I surprised him and made this! His most favorite favorite food is "Fish & Chips)

We pretty much NEVER make fried food (we still try all the pubs around seeking good Fish & Chips ~ no luck there!)

But this looks like an irresistible treat for special occasion (we have one coming up on the 15th!) And I going to go for it.

I haven't seen much Hake around here, so I might have ti substitute with Halibut, Cod or Whitefish which I think would work pretty (let me know if you disagree!)

Again, thanks for the recipe and the inspiration!
