      Season the flour generously with salt and pepper (depending on the size of your fillets, you may need extra seasoned flour).

      Dredge the skin side of the hake fillets in the seasoned flour, shake off the excess, and set aside.
    4. 4
      Heat a shallow flameproof casserole over high heat until you can feel the rising heat. Add the oil and heat until hot, about 30 seconds.
    5. 5
      Add the hake fillets, skin side down, and cook for about 3 minutes until the skin is golden brown.
    6. 6
      Turn the fish over and season with salt and pepper (to taste).
    7. 7
      Pour in the wine and add the garlic, scallions, and parsely.

      I used skinless flounder, so skipped the frying part, placed in a single layer in a large baking dish, used vermouth instead of white wine - this adds additional herbal notes and works very well with a dish like this. Mine did not brown by the time the fish was done, and had I realized how much liquid was left, I would have made a little sauce to nap the fish with - now the juices are strained and frozen for a future fishy soup. This went nicely with rice and mixed veggies.

      Wow, what a fantastic, quick and easy meal! The only thing I adjusted was adding a few chopped anchovies to the oil before frying the fish. Will definitely make this again!

      WoW! Delicious recipe for fish! I actually used a Basa fillet with no skin so I of course skipped the part dealing with the skin. I used a non-stick skillet with a metal handle so I could place the thing in the oven as directed. The fish was super moist and the combination of flavors are delightful. Made for Potluck Tag 2009.
