This oven-baked hake with basil, lime, ginger and garlic is a super healthy and flavour-packed weeknight supper recipe.
With all my recent baking escapades, I needed some temple food to get back on track, and kick-start the regime again.
This is just a really healthy way to cook a piece of fish without compromising on flavour. I used hake, but a firmer fish like kingklip would probably work even better. Its fuss free and oh so very simple.
It’s very saucy, great for hake which is crying out for flavour.
This is supper for me with steamed vegetables. Shiny sparkly halo.
