  • SERVES 4
  • PREPARATION TIME 10 minutes
  • COOKING TIME 30 minutes
  • 4 thick hake fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 700g sweet potatoes, cut into 3cm chunks
  • 60g chorizo, finely sliced
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 1 lemon, cut into quarters
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the crust:
  • 60g sourdough breadcrumbs (or similar)
  • 25g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley leaves and fine stalks, finely chopped
  • Finely grated zest ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/fan 200ºC/gas mark 7.
  2. Lightly brush both sides of the fish with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Set aside. Place the sweet potatoes in a 30 x 20 x 5cm roasting tray, toss with the olive oil and season generously. Roast for 20 minutes, shaking the tray halfway through.
  3. Meanwhile, toss all the ingredients for the crust together in a bowl. When the sweet potatoes have had their 20 minutes, remove the tray from the oven and nestle the fish fillets into the tray, skin-side down if they have skin. Arrange a single layer of chorizo on top of each fillet, then cover with the crust mixture, pressing down gently to keep it in place. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through and the crust is golden.
  4. Transfer the fish to warmed serving plates. Add the spinach to the roasting tray and toss with the sweet potatoes. The spinach should wilt slightly in the residual heat of the roasting tray. Serve immediately with the fish, and lemon wedges for squeezing over the fish.
