Top tip: How to get the best taste

For the very best flavour use ripe Scottish tomatoes and make sure that you have reduced the sauce to a thick consistency before serving.


  • 4 Hake Cutlets (200g each)
  • 2 tsp rapeseed oil for cooking
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 450 / 1lb of tomatoes peeled, seeded and chopped (for convenience you can use a 400g tin of chopped tomatoes)
  • 1 tsp of tomato puree
  • 60ml / 4 tsp dry white wine
  • Handful of chopped parsley
  • 2 tsp dried breadcrumbs
  • 0.25g salt and pinch of pepper



1. Preheat the oven to 180oC / gas mark 5.

2. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion for 5 mins until it becomes translucent, add the garlic, tomatoes, tomato puree, wine and seasoning.

3. Bring the sauce to the boil and reduce the heat and cook the sauce uncovered for 20 mins until it has become thick. Add the parsley.

4. Put the hake in the oven proof dish and spoon the tomato sauce evenly over the cutlets. Sprinkle the dried breadcrumbs over the top.

5. Bake for 20-30 mins, basting the fish occasionally with the sauce, until the fish is tender and cooked through and the breadcrumbs are golden and crispy.

6. Serve with steamed new potatoes and green beans.
