In our opinion, these baked hake goujons are most enjoyable fresh out of the oven alongside a green veg, but feel free to use your imagination! They’d be delicious alongside chips, salad, or a roast potato of some description – the sky’s the limit!

Baked Hake Goujons

  • Author: Jess Bunn
  • Total Time: 40 Minutes
  • Yield: 2 Servings


These feather-light hake goujons are breaded, baked and served with roast garlic aioli. Fish fingers move over, there’s a new player in town!



For the goujons

  • 300g boneless hake loins (cut into 2cm thick fingers)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko style)
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise

For the garlic aioli

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves

For serving

  • lemon wedges
  • greens of choice (we made a simple chunky pea mash)


The fish fingers

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Lightly oil a baking tray, cover with an even layer of bread crumbs, and stir through the tablespoon of oil to help the crumbs brown evenly. Bake until golden brown and crunchy.
  3. Crack an egg into a bowl, and add in the mayonnaise. Whisk until well combined, then add in a tablespoon of water.
  4. Add a pinch of salt to the flour.
  5. Roll the hake fingers through the flour, then dip into the egg mixture and dredge evenly through the coconut egg crumbs. Place your coated fish fingers onto a wire baking rack and set aside.
  6. Bake in the oven until golden brown.

Roasted garlic aioli

  1. Cover the garlic cloves in tin foil and wrap tightly.
  2. Place into the oven while it preheats, and bake along with the fish. Once baked, mush your garlic in a bowl, then stir into the mayonnaise until well combined.
  3. Serve your hake goujons with your favourite greens, we picked mushy peas.
  4. Add a lemon wedge to serve, and enjoy!
