1. Heat your oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5. Halve the garlic bulb, pop it on a baking tray and roast for 20-25 mins till it’s soft.
2. Scatter the breadcrumbs on a plate. Sprinkle the flour on a separate plate and season with salt and pepper. Crack the egg into a shallow bowl. Whisk to break it up.
3. Slice the hake fillets in half. Dip them in the flour, then the egg, and then the breadcrumbs. These are your fish burgers.
4. Take the garlic out of the oven. Remove the garlic and set it to one side. Lay the breaded hake fillets on the tray. Bake the fish burgers for 20 mins till golden brown.
5. Meanwhile, squeeze the garlic out of the appery skins into a bowl. Mash them with a fork. Roughly chop the parsley and add it to the garlic. Add the mayo and stir to mix. Taste the roast garlic mayo and season.
6. Split the burger buns in half. Flash them under the grill for a few mins to lightly toast them, if liked. Spread the bases with a little of the mayo. Top with the fish burgers, a few lettuce leaves and the rest of the mayo to serve.

Fantastic dish! I made these alongside the stuffed onion recipe and they went together perfectly. The garlic mayo was really flavoursome but it didn't overpower the taste of the hake and the bake at home sesame roll was delicious. I will definitely be making these again.



We tried these at the weekend, they were lovely and my children enjoyed them too which is always a bonus.
