Hake

Merluccius Merluccius

Hake are a larger member of the Cod family, native to the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, as well as the coast of New Zealand. Whilst they spend the majority of their life living at depths of over 1,000 metres, these nocturnal fish emerge from their dark depths at night in search of food. With a mouth bursting with razor sharp teeth, swimming in small schools allows the swift, carnivorous Hake to force their prey towards the shore.

When cooking Hake, grilling, pan-frying or baking the fish will unleash its mild, white, flaky texture, and a flavour that’s more subtle than Cod. It’s meat also compliments more robust flavours, such as: chorizo, garlic, paprika or tomatoes, and is consequently considered one of the best fish within the Cod family.
