The various fish that come under the banner ‘hake’ are deep-sea members of the cod family and are popular throughout Europe. Hake is quite a mild fish, with a white flaky texture and a flavour that is more subtle than that of cod. The fish has a soft, iron-grey skin and silvery belly. The flesh when raw is naturally very soft, but when cooked it becomes firm and meaty.
Both red and white wines can work well, however very light whites are best avoided as they may be over-powered if the fish has been roasted or grilled.
