  • About

Hake always makes me think of Spain and it makes sense to pair it with the best Spanish product, the best ham in the world. The croquetas are a nod to the tapas bar, and you could make them with ham, Spinach, Salt cod, etc



  • a handful of wild garlic leaves
  • 25 g butter
  • 30


To make the croquetas

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan then sauté the wild garlic leaves until well wilted. Leave to cool before chopping finely.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan then stir in the flour. Cook for a few minutes then add the cold milk, all in one go.

Bring to the boil, while gently whisking until it starts to thicken.
