If fish is not your favourite ingredient or it bores you, this is your recipe. And I can tell you so because I use to get bored easily of meat and fish if they are not cooked in a different way or with an special touch as it seems the same meal everyday.
I will use the oven for this recipe and the hake has to be just a little bit inside, as we don’t want it to get dry. The mushrooms, nevertheless, should be inside the oven so the best things you can bake them in a different pan so you can leave them inside once you have taken the fish out the oven.
It goes without saying that you should use a good Spanish Ham to get the best results. I know outside Spain is quite hard to find it, but do your best or use bacon instead. I’m very lucky that my mum is from a small village in Cáceres so I always have at home really good Iberian ham.
Finally, I have used hake but I0m pretty sure the recipe goes fine with any kind of fish. The sauce is soft and don’t be afraid of spices as they don’t taste strong and I’m sure you’ll like it.
So, go ahead, try it and tell me the results!
