I love this recipe because its not only delicious, but so easy to make! Despite its simplicity, it can be presented as a "fancy" dish for guests if baked and served on a glass, fish-shaped platter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs hake fillets
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream (If you substitute the sour cream with yoghurt, dish is inclined to be sour)
  • 1 ounce sour cream and onion potato chips (crushed)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon chives (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon chives (chopped for garnish)
  • 12 teaspoon paprika


  1. If using frozen hake, defrost and dry with kitchen towels.
  2. Lightly season the fish fillets with salt and peper and arrange in a greased oven dish.
  3. Combine the sour cream, potato crisps, garlic, cheese, chives and paprika and spread over fish.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees F. (Thickest part of the fish should flake easily and no longer be glassy).
  5. Garnish with extra chives.

My husband said, "Yum" too many times to count!
I didn't have any sour cream, so against above advice, I used non-fat plain greek yogurt. I thought it worked perfectly! Also, I didn't have the chips, so I crushed up some parmesan flavored Goldfish crackers instead. DELICIOUS!

This was wonderful - I used Cottage Cheese instead of sour cream and did not combine the crushed chips but added them on top for the last 5 minutes of baking - Lovely crunchy topping. I used Basa filets Thanks for posting Shazzie

Yum, yum, Shazzie! Use all the ingredients as written; but topped the mixture with crushed Sour Cream-onion potato chips, instead of combining them in the mixture. Baked soft and flaky with a nice crunchy top. Brava, lady! A winner! Made for CameraLess Chefs in Cooking Photos.
