Hake Medallions with Cilantro and Olives


Frozen fish works perfectly fine in recipes like this one, where the fish will be covered in a rich sauce and baked in the oven. It doesn't even need to be thawed first, and will be cooked through in only ten or so minutes, meaning this is a fast track dish to make for a busy weeknight meal, rounded out with mashed potatoes. You can find instant bechamel sauce in packages at many supermarkets.
