Fish is a quick-cooking option for busy weeknight meals, but also special enough to prepare for guests. Take this recipe, for example: It takes just over half an hour to prepare, start to finish, and involves basic cooking methods. The aromatic sauce is thickened with just a bit of flour and uses a flavorful stock as a shortcut; leave it as is for a casual supper or puree until smooth for a dinner party.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 leek (diced)
  • 1 onion (peeled and diced)
  • 1 garlic clove (peeled and minced)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 500 milliliters fish stock
  • 4 hake (or cod loins)
  • 8 large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper


  1. Add the oil to a skillet on medium heat. Saute the leek, onion, and garlic for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the flour and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the stock and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Blend the sauce with an immersion blender to make it smooth, or leave it as is for more texture.
  5. Season the fish and shrimp with salt and black pepper and add them to the sauce.
  6. Cook for 3 minutes, turn the fish and shrimp and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the stove and serve the fish with the sauce..

This hake in sauce recipe was one of the best that I have ever tasted throughout my many years of cooking. It had the perfect blend of herbs with chunks of mouthwatering shrimp that soaked in all of the various flavors. I used Knorr homestyle stock and found this recipe to be one that I can use many times in the future. A real 5 star recipe in my book.
