Dry the hake fillets with a kitchen towel. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Coat hake with the seasoned flour and dust off excess flour.

Heat 2 tbsp. avocado oil on a pan. Place the fillets in the pan and cook for 2 minutes each side. Remove from the pan.

Add the coconut cream to the same pan. Leave it on the heat to simmer until it starts to thicken slightly. Stir in the lemon juice and add back the fillets. Cook for a further 2 minutes, turning them half way.

Mix in the coriander and taste for seasoning. Adjust the amount of salt and pepper that you add, according to taste.

For the grilled vegetables, first rinse the vegetables under running water. Place them in a pan with a lid for 2 minutes. This allows the vegetables to steam using the excess water. Next, remove the lid and pour in 1 tbsp. avocado oil. Season with garlic flakes, salt and pepper and leave to sauté for 4 minutes turning them regularly.

Serve the hot vegetables with the hake and sauce.


When you grill the vegetables, be careful not to cook for too long. When they are just right, they keep a bit of crunch and texture to complement the fish.
