Fillets of Hake with Mussels and parsley cream sauce

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 Fillets of Hake with Mussels and parsley cream sauce recipe as tried and tested by our professional chefs.


  • ingredients:
  • 6 130g hake fillets
  • 360g of mussels
  • 1 aubergine, large
  • 2 red peppers
  • 3 courgettes
  • olive oil
  • 1l of fish stock
  • 500ml of double cream
  • 2 handfuls of chopped parsley, finely
  • 100ml of water
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 knob of butter


1:Put the mussels in a saucepan and add 100ml of water. Cover and simmer for 1 minute, or until the mussels have opened. Strain and leave in the fridge until required
2:Cut off either end of the aubergine, courgettes and red peppers. Slice the aubergines and courgettes crossways diagonally in strips no thinner than 5mm, then cut the aubergine slices into half-moons
3:Cut the red peppers into triangles. Place a chargrill pan over a high heat. Brush the vegetables all over with olive oil and, once the pan is hot, cook them for about 45 seconds on each side. Remove and keep warm
4:Bring the fish stock to the boil in a saucepan and simmer until reduced by half. Add the double cream and simmer for 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm
5:Heat a large frying pan with a knob of butter. Lay the hake fillets in the pan skin-side down and cook for about 3 minutes on each side
6:Just before serving, stir the mussels and chopped parsley into the sauce. Generously spoon it around your serving plates, then arrange the chargrilled vegetables on top
7:Add the hake skin-side up. Put the mussels around the fish and vegetables and garnish with the caviar and fronds of fennel or dill
