  • About

    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.

    CONTENT

    5.0kg Box of Hake Fillets* (approx. 450g+ per fillet)

    *The rib bones have been removed but some bones will remain.

  • Instructions

    Your Hake fillets will arrive frozen with individually wrapped 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.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

    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.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    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)

    Preparation:

    1. If you are using frozen hake fillets, you can allow them to defrost in the fridge overnight.
    2. Line a baking tray with tin foil and grease with spray and cook.
    3. Pat dry the fillets on both sides and place on the baking tray skin side down.
    4. Season the fillets with salt and pepper.
    5. 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.
    6. Slice thin shards of butter and evenly space over the fillets.
    7. Switch the grill on to low and place the tray under the grill for approximately 2 minutes allowing the butter to melt.
    8. 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.
    9. Place the tray back under the grill, this time on a medium heat setting on the second shelf from the top.
    10. Grill for 10 minutes and remove from the oven.
    11. The crumbs should be a nice golden colour.
    12. Serve immediately with a side or two of your choice.

          HAKE

          Great service. The fillets were thick and fresh. Shallow fried some and made delicious fish cakes with the left overs. I am so impressed with Green Fish. Will use them again and again.

          Hake

          The package came on the same day when ordered. So many thanks. I love how the pieces of hake are nice and thick. One piece can make a meal for 4 persons. It makes for a good Thai curry and excellent when fried. It tastes perfectly fresh!

          The service was excellent from the first call right up to the collection of the fish. As the fish had to be transported for nearly 900km , Greenfish provided and packed the product in polystyrene boxes and ice packs. The fish arrived at our place still fully frozen ! Thank you

          Top Service and Top Quality Hake

          The hake fillets are top quality and we get at least 4 portions from a single fillet. We had them dusted in flour and grilled and also derp fried in batter - just beautiful.
