Blue Hake is from New Zealand. I cut the loins in chunks and batter. Pan fried is quick, easy and does not require a lot of oil. I love to use paprika in my batter. Everything is a golden brown to deep brown and very light tasting.NOTE: DO NOT FORGET THE WATER IN THE EGGS AND YOU MAY HAVE TO USE MORE MILK IF YOU WANT THE BATTER THINNER BUT IF YOU DO IT MAY NOT COVER THE FISH, IT MAY RUN OFF. DEPENDING ON YOUR ALTITUDE IS DETERMINING THE AMOUNT OF TIME TO COOK. If you want more spicy then add caynne pepper to the batter or other peppery spices.
