Baked Hake with crispy bacon, balsamic syrup and vegetables

Substituting fish for meat is one of the best dietary changes you can make for your health. Fish is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, and you can never eat too much, so just start cooking!

In this recipe I have used hake, but you can use other white fish as well. Hake has a gentle sweetness, mild flavor and white, firm flesh with flaky structure.Baked Hake with crispy bacon, balsamic syrup and vegetables

1,3 lb. (600 g) filet of hake
1 tablespoon salt
7 oz. organic dry salted bacon
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon Tagatesse
7 oz. (200 g) pumpkin in small dices
2 carrots in small dices
2 turnips in small dices
1 onion in small dices
3,5 oz. (100 g) celeriac in small dices
1 handful chives, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper
1 pinch nutmeg

Start by cutting up all the vegetables so they are ready for later.

Sprinkle the fish with salt, wait 10 minutes then wash it of. Preheat the oven to 212° F (100° C) and bake until you reach a core temperature of 130° F (54°C) degrees, this takes about 15 min.

Meanwhile, in a small pot reduce the balsamic vinegar together with Tagatesse to ¼ cup, remove from heat and whisk in butter. Cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy, and over medium heat sauté the vegetables in butter until just tender.

Serve the fish with crispy bacon, vegetables, balsamic syrup and a sprinkle of chives.
