Method

  1. Heat the butter in a large sauté pan until starting to sizzle, add the bacon, then fry for a few mins. Add the onion, celery and carrots, then gently cook for 8-10 mins until softening, but not brown. Stir in the thyme and cabbage, then cook for a few mins until the cabbage starts to wilt. Pour in the wine, simmer until evaporated, then add the stock and beans. Season, cover the pan, then simmer gently for 10 mins until the cabbage is soft but still vibrant.

  2. When the cabbage is done, cook the fish. Season each fillet, then dust the skin with flour. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the fish, skin-side down, for 4 mins until crisp, then flip over and finish on the flesh side until cooked through. Serve each fish fillet on top of a pile of cabbage with a few small potatoes, if you like.

A very tasty cabbage stew. But the fish lack flavour. Will chop the fish up and add to the pan next time

Liked the cabbage stew but found the hake a bit dry.

I tried this wonderful recipe last weekend and was amazed with the taste of the ingredients when used together. I used butter beans and chick peas which worked very well. One to try again. Delicious :-)

Our fish was skinless and it stuck to the pan quite a bit. Will try grilling it next time as some other users suggested. The juices were very nice though, and it felt very healthy, despite the bacon!

This isn't anything like Garbure
