5 Cape Hake Fish Recipes That Are Perfect for a Cosy Winter Evening

Love it or hate it, winter creeps in every year, and we embrace it with nights under fleece blankets while sipping sweet hot chocolate. While the cold is not always pleasant, it does offer us the opportunity for some warm, hearty meals that nourish the body and soul. If you are a fan of appetising winter meals, and if you’re looking for some creative Cape hake fish recipes, then you have come to the right place. Not only do we at Sea Harvest make fresh Cape hake easily accessible and affordable, but we take the hassle out of fussing over dinner with simple, yet tasty, recipes. Below are five of our favourites when it comes to wintertime cooking.

1. Classic Tomato Soup – With a Twist

Winter and soup make for a magical combination, especially when you are seeking out something warm and soothing. Here at Sea Harvest, we love a creamy tomato soup, but we add a bit of pizzazz to this traditional meal with some cheesy Fish Finger bites instead of standard croutons. Cheese and tomato are superb complementary flavours, and our golden brown morsels of goodness are the perfect addition to this soup.

2. Mac ‘n’ Cheese Fish Finger Bake

Macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Unlike most recipes, however, we have added some Cape Hake to the mix in the form of our crunchy, crispy-crumb Fish Fingers. This creamy, cheesy meal is not just easy to prepare, but it won’t break the bank either. But don’t let this uncomplicated recipe fool you – because you will not be missing out on any flavour when you dig into a bowl of this all-time family favourite.

3. Craving Italian? Try this Fish Bake

Italian food has a way of hitting the spot after a busy day. Many Italian recipes, however, are a little tricky to make. Our Cape hake bake, on the other hand, keeps it undemanding with wholesome, simple ingredients and plenty of flavour. Using our Cape whiting steaks, herbs, onion, tomato, peppers, olive oil, and a dash of white wine, you will want to make this meal a staple in your weekly menu. It’s also perfect for those cosy, candlelight date nights with a side of toasted ciabatta and a glass of wine.

4. This Fisherman’s Pie Will Have No Leftovers

Unlike Shepherd’s Pie which makes use of ground beef, our Fisherman’s Pie uses tender Cape hake to bring out the flavour of the garlic, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese sauce. This meal is satisfying enough to tempt anyone into dishing up second helpings and is perfect for Sunday lunches or weekday nights when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that any leftovers will be available for a sneaky midnight nibble.

5. Authentically South African Seafood Stew

Seafood is not just for light summer lunches and paella – it can easily be the star of any saucy stew too. In fact, seafood stews are a staple in many cultures, but we have put a uniquely South African twist on this beloved dish. You are free to use the seafood of your choice, or a mix of ingredients such as Cape hake, mussels, and prawns. This nourishing meal also includes potatoes, sweet corn, and a creamy base with the aroma of spring onion wafting out of every spoonful.
