  • 2 hake fillets
  • 10 black olives
  • 10 green olives
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • Slice the peppers, and finely dice the onion. Grate, or finely chop the garlic.
  • Heat up the olive oil in a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, peppers and onion, and sauté for a minute or two until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Add the red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to the skillet. Sauté for another minute.
  • Then, add canned diced tomatoes and olives. Stir to incorporate the ingredients evenly, and leave the sauce to simmer gently for 3-4 minutes.
  • Place the hake fillets on top of the vegetables. If the fish fillets have skin on, place the skin side down.
  • Bake the hake in the oven at 360 F / 180 C for about 15 minutes, or until the fish easily flakes at the touch of a fork.



  • Store leftovers in a refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stove or in a microwave.
  • Replace the olives and peppers with other vegetables if you prefer.
