Hake is in the same order as cod or haddock, so it's a basic fish that takes on flavor well (and isn't too "fishy"). I decided to bake ours using a buttered bread crumbs with parsley and lemon juice topping. Simple, easy, and turned out delicious both last night and today for lunch.
I use the buttered bread crumbs topping on a variety of things (including baked tomatoes and mac n cheese). For this, you simply get some butter (I eyeball it based on how far it needs to spread), melt it, and then slowly add enough breadcrumbs to absorb the butter and be enough to be more about the breadcrumbs and not liquid. Then I toss in some parsley (I've found that dried or fresh works, whatever you have) and maybe some pepper.
I salted and peppered the fish and then spread the breadcrumb topping on it. Then I popped it into an oven at 400°F for maybe 15 minutes. It's thin and cooks quick, perfect for a quick meal. We cooked some of the potato dish, made up a salad and called the meal done.
