Here, in her super-easy and totally delicious way that’s become her hallmark, she transforms humble hake into a dish for a feast. Her special touch is to cleverly pair it with Drostdy-Hof Natural Sweet Rosé, where the tanginess of the tomatoes is complemented by the wine’s strawberry, cherry and plum flavours.

- Season the fish fillets and fry in the butter and olive oil over medium heat until golden and just cooked through. Add the tomatoes for the last 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside on kitchen paper to drain off excess fat.
