Spicy Hake Curry

I recently made a fabulous discovery in my local Tesco – frozen hake fillets. Simply boned, skinned and frozen. So handy and ideal for popping into a curry.

Hake is a white fish that is low fat and low calorie but high in protein. The flavour is very neutral so you’ve got lots of scope to experiment with accompanying ingredients and that’s why I feel this fish works perfectly in a curry. Alternatively, I’ve got another recipe for a mixed fish curry that you might like. The recipe below serves two.

Hope you enjoy!
