Hake in Sauce


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 onions (peeled and diced)
