This was such a delicious dinner, and incredibly easy to do.
I had a meal very similar to this at a restaurant a few weeks ago in Cornwall and it was so good I had to try and recreate it.
Happy to say this turned out completely delicious.
Maybe a bit of a cheat’s ‘cassoulet’ as apparently that’s rich and slow-cooked(?). This has tons of flavour but was super quick and simple, no faff or waiting around required 🙂
And the salmon on top of the hake…never tried that before but wow! So good.
Love to hear your thoughts if you make this 🙂
Here’s the recipe (serves 2):
- 1 onion
- half a courgette
- 1 carrot
- 4 large mushrooms
- 1 yellow pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 x approx 400g carton or tin of chopped tomatoes (I had a carton of sainsburys chopped tomatoes with basil and oregano)
- 1 x approx 400g carton or tin of butter beans
- 2 fillets of hake
- approx 60-80g smoked salmon
- Fresh or dried parsley (optional)
Pre heat the oven to 190C.
Put the fillets of hake on some foil, squeeze a bit lemon over them and a sprinkle of salt, then layer the smoked salmon on top. Wrap the foil into a parcel and pop in the oven to cook for around 15 minutes.
Meanwhle, chop all the veg and pop it in a pan with the crushed garlic cloves and a couple of teaspoons of olive oil, or a few sprays of frylite. Stir often for around 10 minutes until cooked.
Add the chopped tomatoes and butter beans (drain them first) and stir in, then leave to simmer for a couple of minutes.
Serve up the veg onto two plates and top each one with a fillet of hake.
A delicious meal full of protein, loads of veg, a bit of healthy fats from the smoked salmon and a good dose of fibre and slow-release carbs from the beans.

Have a brilliant weekend.
