Hake Detail, La Boqueria Market, Barcelona

Hake detail [enlarge]

As part of my La Boqueria market series I wanted to show you this detail of a hake which is one of the most consumed fish species on the Spanish table. Here are some essential recipes to enjoy hake: Merluza a la Gallega, Merluza a la Vasca and Cocochas al Pil Pil, there are many more of course. Remember to accompany them with a good white wine, like Albariño for example.


  1. Yikes! I'd have to have my fork at the ready just in case this thing attacked!

    Popular fish, heh? Hmmm...

    How about a few veggies instead?

    It is a great photo, though! :-)

  2. Looks like a nasty little fellow. Tastes lovely!

  3. Must be a mighty fine tasty fish, guess you can't go by looks. Excellent angle for the shot of this fascinating fish. Great capture.
