Merluza a la gallega

Some more healthy food cooking for your taste pleasure. This time, we're going to do Merluza a la Gallega (or Hake Galizian style). I personally find hake quite tasteless, so it needs to have some kind of sauce or something that gives it more taste, so the a la gallega part is the way to go.

You need (for 2 people):

  • 1 onion
  • Hake filets. They can be frozen, as in my case, but of course, it's probably better if you buy them fresh:
  • Hot Paprika:
  • Potatoes
And here's how to do it:
  1. Boil the potatoes with their skins:
  2. Chop the onion and fry it:
  3. Once the potatoes are soft (don't touch them, just try with a fork :-) ), peel them and cut them into slices:
  4. Once the onion is poached, put half a spoon of floor and fry. This is for making the sauce thicker:
  5. Then, put the potato slices all over and pour some paprika all over:
  6. Then put the hake filets:

    and cover with water
  7. Final step is to just wait until the hake is soft:

And these easy steps (it will take less than 1 hour to do it, and this is counting the time the potatoes need to be boiled down, which is quite long, during which you can continue hacking :-) ) make for some healthy food:
