Preheat the oven to 220°C and line a baking sheet with foil or baking paper. Lightly rub each I&J Deep Water Hake fillet with a little olive oil and arrange on the baking sheet. Grill the hake for 20-25 minutes or until flaky and cooked through.

Meanwhile, cook the lentils as per the packet instructions. Once cooked and drained of any excess liquid, add in the spinach and cook down until wilted. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the basil pesto, torn basil leaves and yoghurt.

Serve the herbed lentils topped with the grilled hake fillets and some crusty bread.
