    Hake with aonori seaweed and panko crumb

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    100g soba noodles
    230g purple sprouting broccoli, halved lengthways
    2 tsp sesame seeds
    3 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
    1½ tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients aonori seaweed
    1½ tsp sesame oil
    2 tsp essential sunflower oil
    2 hake fillets
    3 tsp Japanese rice vinegar
    1 tsp tamari soya sauce
    2 essential salad onions, finely sliced 


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Cook the soba noodles in salted boiling water for 5 minutes then drain and rinse in cold water; set aside. Char the broccoli in a dry frying pan with a pinch of salt for 8 minutes, turning halfway, until cooked through.

    2. Meanwhile, heat an ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat and toast the sesame seeds for 1-2 minutes. Tip the seeds onto a plate. Toast the panko breadcrumbs for 1-2 minutes then put in a bowl with the aonori seaweed, 1 tsp sesame oil, ½ the toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of salt; toss to combine.

    3. Return the pan to the heat and add the sunflower oil. Season the hake and put it skin-side down in the pan. Pour 1 tsp vinegar over each fillet then top with the seaweed crumb and cook for 3 minutes. Transfer to the oven and cook for 3-4 minutes until the fish is cooked through and the crumb is golden. Stir the remaining ½ tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp vinegar and the tamari through the noodles. Toss in the salad onions and remaining sesame seeds. Divide the noodles between 2 plates, top with the hake fillets and serve with the broccoli.
