Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop the chunks onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then sprinkle over half the North Indian style spice mix and half the mustard seeds. Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.


Meanwhile, mix together the panko breadcrumbs and remaining North Indian style spice mix in a small bowl. Add the olive oil for the crumb (see ingredients for amount), then season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.


Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pat the hake with kitchen paper to remove any excess moisture. Lay the hake fillets onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread half the mayo over the top and sides of the fish. Spoon over the breadcrumb mixture, pressing it down with the spoon. Set aside for now. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.


Zest and cut the lime into wedges. Trim the green beans. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pop the remaining mayonnaise into another small bowl with the lime zest. Season with salt and pepper, then mix together. About 10 mins before the potatoes are cooked, bake the fish on the middle shelf of the oven the crumb is golden and the fish is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The hake is cooked when opaque in the middle.


While everything cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the green beans. Season with salt and pepper, then stir-fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins. Stir in the garlic and remaining mustard seeds and cook for 1 min. Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Allow to cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins.


When everything is ready, plate up your hake with the spiced potatoes and green beans alongside. Serve with the a dollop of zesty mayo and the lime wedges alongside for squeezing over. Enjoy!
