Classic Hake Bulk Box | Frozen Box | Wild caught | 5kg
THE KING OF THE SEA
The name hake is derived from Haki, a mythological Scandinavian Sea King, and today the Spanish still refer to hake as “the king of the sea.” So why all these royal monikers and associations? Well, hake is prized for its delicate flesh and mild flavour, as well as its incredible versatility in the kitchen, which allows it to be fried, grilled, baked, braised, cooked in foil or used in soups and stews. All our hake is sourced from long line fishermen departing Cape Town harbour and fishing off Cape Point.
5kg Box of Hake Fillets (approx. 350g per fillet)
Your box will arrive frozen with individually wrapped fillets for convenience. Simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost, simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.
While hake is a slow growing fish, they are serial spawners, and this makes them incredibly resilient to fishing pressures. In fact, even hake caught through trawling is rated green by SASSI, but in line with our commitment to doing the least harm possible we exclusively source our hake from long line fishermen, for the most ecologically friendly catch possible. And better quality than trawlers.

Crispy Crumbed Hake
Our partner site The Fishwife has shared this wonderful (and easy to make) crumbed hake recipe. You will need:
- 2 x Hake Fillets
- 1/2 Cup Cornflake Crumbs (DO NOT SUBSTITUTE)
- Salt & Pepper
- Shards of butter (approx 2-3 Tbsp)
- If you are using frozen hake fillets, you can allow them to defrost in the fridge overnight.
- Line a baking tray with tin foil and grease with spray and cook.
- Pat dry the fillets on both sides and place on the baking tray skin side down.
- Season the fillets with salt and pepper.
- Sprinkle the cornflake crumbs over the fillets (about 1/4 cup per fillet). Use your finger or the back of a spoon to evenly coat.
- Slice thin shards of butter and evenly space over the fillets.
- Switch the grill on to low and place the tray under the grill for approximately 2 minutes allowing the butter to melt.
- Once the butter has melted remove from the oven and add extra shards of butter to any areas that have been missed and remained dry.
- Place the tray back under the grill, this time on a medium heat setting on the second shelf from the top.
- Grill for 10 minutes and remove from the oven.
- The crumbs should be a nice golden colour.
- Serve immediately with a side or two of your choice.

As usual it's always a pleasure eating fish from Green Fish just a pity when there is no fresh fish available
Greenfish gets a big thumbs-up from me for the delicious humongous hake fillets delivered in no time! Frozen has never tasted so fresh.
I have bought many times and have always been happy with the service and quality. I highly recommend buying from Greenfish
Exceptional quality. I was quite surprised by the size of the fillets let alone the box itself. The fish looks amazing!
Greenfish supplied us with top quality hake. Was easy to work with these beautiful fresh fillets. They also delivered in less than 24hours to me which was exceptional. Won't be getting my seafood any place other than Greenfish

Fantastic service, hake was packaged very well. It tastes fresh - most full of flavour hake I have ever had the privilege of cooking at home.
Perfect, and what made the experience better was that I was able to share it with my family
Excellent quality fish. Clever packaging and speedy delivery: highly recommend Green Fish
I took a chance and placed an order online on Wednesday afternoon for the fish special for the Easter Weekend. The Fish was promptly delivered the next day after my golf game as requested. The cherry on top was the guy delivering the fish as he was super friendly and service orientated to such an degree that I spent time marketing the fresh and restaurant quality fish that he had just delivered. He promised to try it out lol. Thank you Green Fish!!
It is really large fillets!
