Hake with a dill and macadamia pesto
  • 500g Sea Harvest Hake fillets
  • 10ml butter
  • salt and black pepper
  • 90g macadamia nuts, roasted
  • bunch of dill (about 5g)
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 60ml olive oil
  • ½ lemon, zest and juice
  • 500g tagliatelle, cooked according to packet instructions (reserve 90 ml of the cooking liquid)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180⁰C.
  2. Season the frozen hake fillets with salt and pepper and dot with butter. Loosely wrap with tin foil and place on a baking tray. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the fillets are cooked. Break the fillets into large pieces.
  3. Place the macadamia nuts, dill, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and zest into a food processor. Add the reserved cooking liquid of the pasta and process until it is creamy.
  4. Stir the pesto through the cooked pasta and add the fillet pieces. Stir through, ensuring not to break up the hake pieces more.
