Cornish Hake – Best of the West

For our regular customers it will come as no surprise that we love our Cornish Hake

It’s lovely to encourage customers to try something other than cod or haddock, and the first thing we always recommend when they’re ready to be a bit more adventurous is hake. Its a truly delicious, versatile fish, and the Cornish catch is outstanding.

Ajax Hake

There are a few Newlyn vessels that land really excellent quality hake – The Joy of Ladram, Karen of Ladram and the Charisma, but when the Ajax lands its catch we always buy extra. Skipper, Alan Dwan is an expcetional Hake fisherman, and a very good friend, and we are always delighted to promote his catch on our counter


And then we have Jon… Jon Fell is a bit bonkers (don’t worry, he knows), but is a brilliant chef who loves his hake as much as we do. There are some links below for some of Jon’s hake recipes – we hope you try them out, we have and they are winners
