Seared Hake poached in Flying Fish

PREP TIME: 30 min | COOKING TIME: 30min
SERVES: 2 | PAIRING: Roast potatoes and refreshed greens

This one is easy and very, very tasty. Chef Michelle Fourie from the Food and Beverage Institute puts together a light, delicious meal this week. She pairs the hake with potato rosettes, roasted cherry tomatoes and some refreshed greens. Delicious Flying Fish (SAB’s famously flavoured beer) is the perfect companion. All the ingredients in the photo shoot and test kitchen are from SAB and Fruit and Veg’s Food Lover’s Market.
