Tonight I'm cooking hake for two people. When I usually cook filleted fish I just cook it in bread crumbs in the oven but this time I want something different (not fried though).
Does anyone have any simple ideas on how to cook it?

Re: Hake Tonight
Lemon fish with sauteed beans and tomatoes
4 (150g each) white fish fillets (such as hake), skin on
1 lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
2 teaspoons olive oil
250g green beans, trimmed
250g cherry tomatoes, halved
1 garlic clove, crushed
150g baby spinach leaves
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
8 slices wholegrain bread, to serve
Place fish in a shallow ceramic dish. Place lemon rind, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 teaspoon oil in a small jug. Whisk to combine. Season with pepper. Pour lemon mixture over fish and turn to coat. Cover. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Preheat grill on medium heat. Line a grill tray with foil. Heat remaining oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add beans to pan. Cook, tossing often, for 2 to 3 minutes or until bright green. Add tomatoes and garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until tomatoes soften. Add spinach and vinegar. Toss until spinach just starts to wilt.
Meanwhile, place fish on grill tray. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes (depending on thickness) or until just cooked through.
Divide bean mixture among serving plates. Top with fish. Season with cracked black pepper. Serve with bread.
