Deep fried Hake In Beer Batter With hand cut thick chips, mushy peas and a dill tartare sauce
Hake is a large white round fish with sweet meat and pinkish colour. It has a mild taste and flaky texture. It is currently considered sustainable and therefore makes and excellent fish and chip alternative to cod or haddock.
Hake and beer make an excellent fish and chip pairing. The traditional frills of mushy peas and tartare sauce make this dish worth every effort. Of course, it should always be seasoned with sea slat flakes and malt vinegar.
Use a good quality chipping potato such as King Edward or Maris Piper. Also use English rapeseed oil for frying as it achieves the best result and is good for the planet.
