Surprisingly not more popular in the UK – a large proportion of the UK catch goes to the Spanish, Portuguese and Italians who love it. Hake has a long, round, slender body and is mainly grey and silver in colour.

The flesh is quite soft, but firms up on cooking, has a good flavour, and is well worth trying. For a light, modern alternative to battered Cod, try deep-frying Hake fillets dipped in a light tempura batter.
