Baked hake in tomato sauce, easy and delicious recipe

I absolutely like fish. Despite being indoors from a very young age, I liked to accompany my mother to the fish market and select what I wanted to eat, and my father went to Burela to the fish market to bring fish in quantity to freeze, so luckily I have always enjoyed a variety of fish at home. Hake is one of my favorites with monkfish, and it is delicious in the oven although this time I wanted to make it with tomato sauce.

So this recipe for baked hake in tomato sauce, which I've never tasted like this before, is inspired by one of Fried Webos once again. The result is perfect, as expected. Of course you can use whiting and remove clams or prawns, to make a cheaper dish.

How to make baked hake in tomato sauce

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 40 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 30 m

We heat the oven to 180º heat up and down. We wash and dry the hake. Chop, salt and lightly pass through flour. We place the hake in a baking dish. In a little oil, brown the rolled garlic clove. We put everything on top of the fish and bake for 10 minutes.

While we cook the peas for about three minutes, leaving them al dente, and the prawns, or if we prefer clams, we steam them. Take the hake out of the oven, top with the peas, prawns and tomato sauce. We cook for 20 more minutes.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately. The baking time is approximate since it depends on the oven and the thickness of the hake. We have to try not to let it dry, so as not to spoil it, so be careful.

What to accompany the baked hake in tomato sauce

This baked hake in tomato sauce should be taken freshly made to be perfect. I advise you to have a good piece of bread on hand because the sauce, if it is homemade as in my case, is delicious with the touch of the oven. As a base, under the hake, you can a layer of cooked cachelo, which will complete the dish.
