SUPER SIMPLE HAKE THERMIDOR
Ek het vanaand hierdie hake gereg vir aandete gemaak. Ek het dit saam met kapokaartappels bedien.
- 750 g Hake
- 2 tablespoons cake flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 320 ml milk
- 180 ml beer
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon spring onions
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese (optional)
In a pot, heat water to boil with salt.
Once water has come to a boil, turn the temperature down to a medium heat, place fish in and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove Hake pieces from the water, pat dry with a roller towel.
Place cooked hake pieces on a plate or baking tray and set aside.
In a smaller bowl melt butter on a medium to high heat, add flour and cook for 2 minutes.
Gradually add milk and beer, continuously stir over heat until the sauce thickens. This might take 30 minutes.
Allow the sauce to cool down, then mix the yolk in.
In a smaller sauce pan gently fry spring onions and mushrooms.
Once cooked stir the mushrooms and spring onions into the sauce.
Spoon the sauce over the fish pieces, sprinkle over some grated cheese and then place in the oven and grill until the surface browns and the cheese melts.
