  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 4 (7-ounce) hake fillets, skin removed
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a large, oven-safe saute pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place the hake in the hot oil, presentation side down. Cook for 2 minutes, then lower the heat. Add the butter to the pan and let it brown around the fish for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and carefully flip the fish over. Transfer the saute pan to the oven and bake for 5 minutes.

Remove the fish fillets to a serving platter. Brush the fillets with the lemon juice and garnish with thyme leaves. Season with salt and white pepper.
