This unusual recipe combines hake with marinated tomatoes and blue cheese. Hake is often used in both Spanish and Portuguese cuisine and combined with typical ingredients from those two cuisines. This fish is caught from shoals in the Mediterranean and Atlantic. Hake is sometimes used to make imitation crabmeat. Because this fish suits Mediterranean flavors, in this recipe we are combining it with tomatoes which have been marinated with onion, in oil and vinegar, as well as blue cheese for a creamy, salty contrast.

The fish is great served on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce, perhaps with some colorful additions to add visual appeal. Green olives and strawberries are suggested in the recipe, to add both saltiness and sweetness, but you can use whatever you want. Capers would be good instead of the olives and you can use any kind of chopped fruit since the lettuce mixture is really just a garnish for the important part of the dish, which is the baked fish on top. Add some arugula too, if you want to mix the greens up a bit.

This easy recipe is made even simpler by the fact you can do everything in stages, rather than having to do tasks together. You can marinate the tomatoes ahead of time, put the fish in the oven whenever you are ready, and make the salad while the tomatoes marinate and the fish cooks. If you really do not like blue cheese, swap it for grated cheddar, mozzarella (if you do not mind the inevitable stringiness) or something like feta cheese. Continue reading

The following recipe combines two delicious types of seafood and that is hake and lobster tails. Hake is a nice, meaty fish and lobster tails need no introduction. The hake is marinated in a lemon, white wine and thyme mixture and then grilled to perfection, and the lobster tails are butterflied, flavored with garlic, hot sauce, and an herb butter, and cooked alongside the fish filets.

As you can imagine, the resulting fish and seafood will be super-juicy and succulent and the flavor will be magnificent. Grilled fish makes a change from steaks, chicken or whatever you normally put on the grill and the whole family will love how this grilled fish recipe tastes.

You can choose from many side dish possibilities here, perhaps adding a green salad or a potato salad. Coleslaw or corn on the cob are other choices. When you are cooking fish and seafood, there are usually plenty of side dish options, so just pick what you like best. Continue reading
