Fish in Cream

This is one of my all time favourite meals from as far back as I can remember.  The taste holds such fond memories.  It is incredible what a “taste-explosion” three ingredients can make, plus it takes all of 3 minutes to prep – brilliant!  You can also replace the hake (stock fish) with sole.

Fish in Cream



500g fresh hake fillets
250ml cream
Juice of a medium lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Place the fish in a baking dish.
  3. Cover with the cream.
  4. Juice the lemon over the cream.
  5. Bake for 35 – 40 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes and baby peas.
