Hake Recipe with Paprika, Chorizo and Potatoes

A very easy and pretty quick Hake Recipe with Paprika, Chorizo and Potatoes for the whole family.

You will notice in the video that they are using cod, which is not a popular choice of fish in South Africa so we have naturally switched over to Hake.

This dinner is a no fuss recipe that will deliver a great tasting piece of fish which will simply need a lemon wedge to finish it off. The potatoes taste really good too having been cooked with the remnants of the chorizo oil.
