Boil a kettle
Peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces
Add the potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt over a high heat and cook for 15 min or until fork-tender
Once done, drain and set aside to steam dry
Re-boil a kettle
Meanwhile, cut the lemon[s] into quarters
Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat
Once hot, add the hake, skin-side down, with a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 min or until the skin has started to crisp
Flip the fish and cook for 1-2 min further or until cooked through
Tip: your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily
Once the hake is done, transfer it to a plate and cover with tin foil to keep warm
Return the pan to a very low heat and add the soft cheese and 100ml [150ml] boiled water and give everything a good mix up until fully combined
Cook for 5-6 min or until thickened to a double cream-like consistency
Add the green beans to a pot of boiling water with a pinch of salt over a high heat and cook for 4-5 min or until tender
Tip: alternatively, to save on washing up, add these to the potato pot when they are 4-5 min from being done!
Once done, drain the cooked beans
Return the drained potatoes to a low heat with a large knob of butter
Mash until smooth, then season generously with salt
Once the sauce has thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the juice of 1/4 [1/2] lemon and the chopped parsley
Season with a pinch of salt – this is your parsley sauce
Tip: add a splash more water if it looks a little dry!
Serve the hake over the mashed potato with the green beans to the side
Pour the parsley sauce over and garnish with a wedge of lemon
