Recipe: Sautéed Hake in Herbed Horseradish Sauce


Hake is widely regarded as one of the best fish in the whiting family. Its white flesh is soft when raw, but turns firm with a medium flake when cooked.

First time hearing of hake?

It can be intimidating to think of what you can do to an unfamiliar fish, but hake, in particular, isn't really that hard to figure out. Part of the cod family, it can be found frozen, smoked, fresh or salted in supermarket shelves - most commonly in the form of steaks. It is generally sweeter and more delicate compared to cod, and conventional ways of preparing this fish (as the Europeans do) would be grilling, baking, or by good old pan-fry. It handles robust flavors very well, so feel free to liberate those capers, paprika and horseradish powders from your kitchen jars!

Tips to buying hake: A good hake product is one with white flesh free from any sign of browning, grayness, and dryness.

I've recently gotten very inspired to cook, and this subsequently led me into creating a recipe for a fish dish that is effortless to prepare, delicious, and artful. The recipe calls for a quality hake steak, which I am using from Bonfisken Deli. Horseradish is the key constituent of the sauce - surprising your taste buds with an unexpected kick with every bite.

Recipe: Wasabi Baked Green Mussels

Recipe: Wasabi Baked Green Mussels


Mussels bring me boundless joy.

They make a great addition to soups and pasta, yielding a slight salty yet ethereal oceany flavor. Sweet, tender and plump, mussels are loved not just for its distinctive taste but also for the high vitamin C, protein, iron and zinc contents.

While I love my meat fresh, mussels are an exception. I'd very much rather buy my shellfish from a box just to save me all the hassle of having to clean and pry them open. For this recipe, I am using Talley's Greenshell Mussels from New Zealand which have been thoughtfully scrubbed, debearded, and ready to cook.

To prepare this simple dish of bivalve, I am using a wasabi-infused mayonnaise-based sauce which is then filled into the shells - just enough to completely cover the meat. They are then left to bake until they bubble, before being served on a plate to grace a dining table.
