  • 100g soba noodles
  • 230g purple sprouting broccoli, halved lengthways
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 3 tsp panko breadcrumbs
  • tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Aonori Seaweed
  • 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 200ºC, 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.
