Serves 2 – this is my own recipe – its delicious and light, even if I do say so myself.


  • 2 hake portions
  • 2 knobs of garlic butter
  • 2 slices of lemon
  • 4 sprigs of fennel
  • 4 sprigs of oregano
  • or use dry herbs or whatever you have growing in the garden


Place the two hake portions into the bag and set a knob of garlic butter, slice of lemon and herbs on top of each one.   Carefully remove the tape and fold the bag over to seal.   Place in the microwave, based on 900W microwave cook for 2-3 minutes, increase the time slightly if your microwave is a lower wattage.   If using a conventional oven cook at 180 for 10-15 minutes.

Serve with potatoes and veg of your choice.

Ovens do vary, please ensure food is cooked and piping hot before serving.   Be aware of hot contents when opening the bag.
