Hake is a mild-flavored white fish that’s often compared to cod or haddock. The dish is found in places like Uruguay, Portugal, South Africa, and New Zealand, but Trader Joe’s new Hake product hails from the chilly Patagonia region of Chile. These fish are wild caught, frozen, and then cut into boneless, skin-on fillets for quick and easy cooking. As for how you prepare the fish, the options are endless. Just as you would a piece of cod or haddock, bake the Chilean Hake Fillets alongside some veggies, or pan-fry them with a crispy coating of panko breadcrumbs.
