Ingredients
 

  • 750 g baking potatoes, roughly 6, washed really well skin on and sliced very thinly
  • 6 red onions, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 3 red peppers, sliced open and flattened
  • 3 yellow peppers, sliced open and flattened
  • 6 tbsp parsley, roughly chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 fish stock cubes
  • boiling water
  • pinch salt
  • pinch ground pepper
  • 700g large hake fillets, skin on but pin boned
  • 8 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed really finely
  • mayonnaise

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 220C gas 7.
  • Take a 30cm x 40cm baking tray.
  • Lay a layer of half the thinly sliced potatoes overlapping nicely.
  • Next, add half the chopped parsley.
  • Sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and oil.
  • Then add a layer of half the sliced onions, then 3 opened out and flattened peppers.
  • Sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and oil.
  • Next, add the rest of the potatoes, last of the parsley and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and oil.
  • Finally, add the last of the red onions and the last 3 peppers, sprinkle with a bit of salt, pepper and oil.
  • Press down with a potato masher.
  • Dissolve the crumbled fish stock cubes in roughly 750mls boiling water.
  • Pour over the vegetables.
  • Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the all then veg is cooked.
  • Remove the foil and re-bake until the stock is well reduced, probably a further 15-20 minutes pressing down occasionally, so you end up with a pressed cake texture.
  • Once ready, place the hake fillets, skin side down, on top of the cake, then season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix the garlic, breadcrumbs, and garlic well, sprinkle over the hake, return to the oven, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 48C or slightly undercooked.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately from the tray.
  • I serve with mayo.
