Roasted Hake & Spuds

My goal with this and a few other recipes lately is to make cooking easier, taking a one-pot meal approach, for tired evenings.

Try to enjoy white fish once a week and oily fish another day to take a break from poultry and red meat.

Potato is a starchy vegetable but it is filling, has good nutrients(potassium, C, B6, B3, B5 and fibre) and goes really well with fish.

Chop or blitz the herb ingredients together with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and serve with the dish. You can add another herb such as dill of you have it.
