The Flavor of Hake & Best Way to Cook it!
I love cod but today when at the fish market, I saw they had Hake. Visually is was similar to cod with the exception of being more on the pinkish side. I was informed it is still a white fish firmer yet as flaky when cooked and as mild a taste as cod.
Can you confirm the taste being similar?
There are many species of Hake, a couple of the more common found are the Cape Capensis and Antarctic queen. Hake should be mild tasting and even a little sweet.
I think you my find that the texture will not be like cod. Although flaky Hake with have the texture similar to sole.
As far as cooking it, you should do just fine cooking it like you would your cod. Hake is excellent fried, sauted or baked. and since it has a mild flavor you can use a wide range of seasonings on it.
Hope this helped. Let me know how it turned out.
