1. Heat your oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5. Halve the garlic and roast for 25 mins on a baking tray till it’s soft.
2. While the garlic roasts, whizz the bread in a food processor to make breadcrumbs. No processor? Coarsely grate it instead.
3. Scatter the breadcrumbs on a plate. Sprinkle the flour on a separate plate. Season with salt and pepper. Crack the egg into a shallow bowl. Whisk to break it up.
4. Slice the hake fillets in half. Dip them in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs.
5. Take the baking tray out of the oven. Remove the garlic and lay the breaded fillets on the tray. Bake for 20 mins till golden brown.
6. Squeeze the garlic out of the skins. Mash them with a fork. Roughly chop the parsley and stir into the garlic with the mayo. Taste and season.
7. Split the buns in half. Flash them under the grill for a few mins to lightly toast them. 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.
