To Prep:

To Cook:

  • French fries, frozen 1kg

To Serve:


To Prep:

  • Preheat oil to 190ÂşC.
  • Season the hake fillets on both sides with Robertsons Lemon & Herb Seasoning.
  • Sieve cake flour and baking powder together.
  • Add Robertsons Veggie Seasoning to the flour.
  • Whisk the flour mix and water together until smooth and shiny –the texture should be like semi-whipped double cream.
  • Chill the batter for ± 30 minutes.
  1. To Cook:

  • Dip the seasoned hake fillets into the chilled batter and allow any excess to drip off.
  • Holding one end, gently lower the fish into the preheated oil one by one, working carefully so you don’t get splashed –the size of your fryer or pan will decide how many fish you can cook at once.
  • Cook for 4 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the batter is golden and crisp, then remove to kitchen paper to drain.
  • Prepare frozen chips according to packaging instructions.
        1. To Serve:

        • Season fried chips with Robertsons Chip and Potato Seasoning and serve with the fried fish.
        1. Top Tip:

        • For the perfect batter, ensure the batter is chilled and thick, so that it souffle’s around the fish, keeping it light and crisp.


        Serving Suggestions

        Herby battered hake can be served with a variety of sides. It goes well with roasted vegetables, steamed rice, or a fresh salad. You can also make fish tacos by placing the fried fish in a warm tortilla and adding toppings such as shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and a dollop of sour cream. Another great way to serve this dish is with a side of sweet potato fries.

        Health Benefits

        Fish is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining good health. Hake is a low-calorie fish that is rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. The herby batter is a healthier alternative to the traditional fried fish batter because it's made with fresh herbs and olive oil.
