This is just as good with Cod or Fresh Haddock. A great winter fish dish.


- 4x225g (8oz.) Fillets of Hake (or Cod or Haddock)

30g (1oz), Butter

30g (1oz). Flour

225ml (8oz) Milk

salt and pepper

110g (4oz). Mature Cheddar

175g (6 oz.) Mushrooms

110g (4oz.) Breadcrumbs which have been browned and dried in the oven.


Melt the butter in a pot and stir in the flour. Pour in the milk slowly, stirring well to amalgamate after each addition until you have a smooth sauce. Grate the cheddar and cook into the sauce for a few minutes. Take this off the heat, put into a bowl and cool.

Slice the mushrooms thinly and fry in a little butter until soft and dry.

Using a tweezers or a small pliars remove any remaining bones from the fish. Lay out the fillets on a greased baking tray.

Lay the cooked chilled mushrooms on each fillet. Spread the cooled cheese sauce on the fillets and sprinkle over the dried crumbs.

Set the oven to 200 C 400 F Gas 6 and when hot put in the fish.

Cook for 10 minutes approximately or until, when stuck with a fork, the flesh yields easily. Lift carefully on to plates and serve immediately.
