Oven Baked Fillet of Hake with Chorizo and Chick Peas

The term hake is a name that includes 13 species of fish - no wonder hake recipes are so vast and varied! Take a look at the following Oven Baked Fillet of Hake with Chorizo and Chick Peas recipe as tried and tested by our professional chefs. Recipe by Chef John Watret


  • 800g fillet of hake, skin on
  • 150g chorizo sausage, diced
  • 400g tinner chick peas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 large tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 dessert spoon of tomato puree
  • 100ml vegetable stock
  • 1 small bunch of parsley chopped
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil


Heat a saucepan and add half the sunflower oil. Add the chrizo and red onion to the pan and sweat gently for 2-3 minutes. Now add the chickpeas and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomato puree and cook for a further 2 minutes. Finally, add the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Mix through the diced tomato and parsley, then pop a lid on the pan and put the stew to one side.
Heat a non-stick pan and add the remaining sunflower oil. Place hake in the pan skin side down and cook on a moderate heat for 2 minutes. Once well seared, flip over and cook for a further 1 minutes, then place into a pre-heated oven at 180​°C for 5 minutes, or until fish is cooked.
Serve the hake on a bed of chick pea and chorizo stew.
