Smoky hake, beans & greens

eat-504843_1280This is a quick, easy and healthy dinner for two. Grill white fish fillets and serve on top of cannellini beans, chorizo, and spinach.


  • Two white fish fillets such as Hake, Cod, Tilapia or many others.
  • mild olive oil
  • ½ x 200g pack raw cooking chorizo (we used Unearthed Alfresco Smoked)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 260g bag spinach
  • 2 x 140g skinless hake fillets
  • ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 red chili, deseeded and shredded
  • 400g can cannellini beans, drained
  • juice ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. seafood-838903_1280Boil a full kettle of water and heat the grill to high. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large frying pan. Squeeze the meat from the chorizo directly into the pan. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes, crushing the meat with a spatula until it is broken up, golden, and surrounded by its juices. The onion should also be soft and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, put the spinach in a colander, slowly pour over the boiled water to wilt it, and then run under the cold tap. Squeeze out the excess water using your hands, and then set aside. Line a baking tray with foil, rub with a little oil and place the fish on top. Season by sprinkling the smoked paprika and drizzle with a little more oil.
  3. Put the chili into the pan with the sausages, fry for 1 minute more, and then add the beans, spinach, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Let it warm through gently, then season to taste.
  4. Grill the fish for 5 minutes or until flaky but not dry – you won’t need to turn it. Spoon the bean mixture onto plates, and then carefully top with the fish and any juices from the tray.
