Whole Baked Lemon Kabeljou


Enjoy our Whole Baked Lemon Kabeljou recipe. Easy to make and incredibly delicious.


  • 700 to 800 g Kabeljou or Hake, deboned.
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 3 tsp crushed garlic
  • 4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp smoked or normal paprika
  • 2 tsp Parsley/Thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • asparagus washed and trimmed


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Combine the butter, lemon, garlic and herbs in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant then remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Place the fish and asparagus onto a large piece of foil, season with salt, pepper and smoked or normal paprika.
  4. Pour the garlic lemon butter sauce over the fish and asparagus and top the fish with lemon slices. Wrap the fish and asparagus in foil, so it’s completely covered.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the fish and asparagus are cooked.

Serve with rice or French fries, paired with our Rietvallei Sauvignon Blanc 2022
