Photo and Recipe by Tod Dimmick

Fast easy treatment of this versatile white fish from Cape Ann Fresh Catch.  This is perfect alongside Powisset greens.

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time:  20 minutes
Serves:  4-6, depending on how much you like your fish.

2 lbs Hake fillets
2-3 TB olive oil
2-3 tsp. of your favorite jerk-style rub.  Here's one version, but there are infinite variations3 TB whole wheat bread crumbs
2 TB cold butter
Fresh lemon

Preheat your oven to 375.  Wash and dry the fillets and arrange in a single layer in a baking tray.  Drizzle with the olive oil and turn fillets to coat.  Sprinkle each side with your seasoning.  Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the top, dot with the butter, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish is done.

Note:  Substitute other white fish fillets, keeping in mind that thinner fillets will cook faster.
