RECIPE: Baked Hake with Smoked Salmon and Butter Bean Cassoulet


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
  • Lemon
  • 2 fillets of hake
  • approx 60-80g smoked salmon
  • Salt
  • 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.

What more could you want?

Have a brilliant weekend.
