Hake Bruschetta

Category: food

A lemony yoghurt sauce makes this Australian variation on bruschetta into an instant classic. Served on toasted bread, a few slices of this tasty snack can be easily served up to form a delicious dinner.


1. For the sauce: Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Season to taste, cover, and chill until needed.

2. For the bruschetta: Preheat the grill to hot. Cut the hake fillet into four even pieces. Arrange on a grilling tray and brush with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Grill for 3-4 minutes until firm yet slightly springy to the touch. Remove from the grill and set aside.

4. Toast the slices of bread under the grill for 1 minute on both sides or until golden-brown. Remove from the grill and place on plates.

5. Top with rocket leaves, hake, and then spoon over the prepared sauce.

6. Serve with the finely sliced basil leaves on top and lemon wedges on the side.
