Hake w/Cucumber Sauce (D, KLP)
Serves: according to number of fillets used

Blue Hake or cod fillets according to number of servings required
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice, to taste
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
2 tablespoons vinegar
Dash of hot sauce
1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped

To Thaw: For best results, thaw blue hake fillets in a covered pan in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours. For quick thawing, place fish in an airtight bag or its original packaging and submerge in a pan of cold water. Do not thaw fish at room temperature. Do not refreeze.

Heat vegetable oil or butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season blue hake fillets with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and place in hot skillet.

Cook approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. For added flavor, sprinkle with lemon juice.

Combine sour cream, onion salt, vinegar, Tabasco and cucumber; chill in refrigerator.

Serve fillets with chilled cucumber sauce.
