Bec’S Bites’ Cheesy Pesto Hake Bake

The method

  1. Season hake fillets with salt, black pepper and oregano.
  2. Pan fry the fish, skin side down on a high heat for a couple of minutes to crisp the skin up. Cover with a lid and continue to cook on a low heat until the fish is white, firm and cooked through.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and put the fish into an ovenproof dish, then return the pan to a low heat and warm through 115ml skimmed milk, whisking in 1 tbsp cornflour mixed with cold water to thicken.
  4. Once beginning to thicken add 15g Parmesan, 1 tbsp reduced fat pesto and season to taste with salt, black pepper, onion granules and garlic granules.
  5. Pour sauce over the fish and then top with 70g light mozzarella and 5g Parmesan and grill until golden.
