Baked Hake on a bed of Beetroot


This time I have matched one of my favourite fish hake and the earthy and sweet taste of Beetroot.

Baked Hake on a bed of Beetroot

Beetroots are a good source of iron and folic acid, which can help to lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance. So why not to try this recipe a little bit unusual.


4 filets of Hake

3 medium beetroot

2 onions

2 tomatoes

1 lemon

Extra virgin olive oil

Prelibato white balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oven at 200º, peal and slice the onions, do the same with the beetroot and pour them into a baking dish. Mix with a little bit of olive oil all together.Hake and Beetroot 01

Now put in the oven for 20 minutes with a tin foil on it. Add the tomatoes cut in quarter and cook for another 10 min with any foil. Now on top add the hake that you will have beforehand seasoned with salt and pepper, and put a slice of lemon and tomato slice, if you like, on top as I did.
