  • 4 Southstream’s Cape Hake fillets
  • 1 bag of scallops
  • 4 ounces of white wine
  • 7 ounces of cooking cream
  • 2 ounces honey
  • 1 tablespoon of flour
  • 3.5 ounces of leek, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch of white pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Olive oil


  1. Defrost the Seafood: Begin by defrosting the scallops and Cape Hake fillets to ensure even cooking.
  2. Prep the Cape Hake: Coat the Cape Hake fillets with a mix of salt, pepper, and flour. This helps to create a light, crispy exterior.
  3. Prep the Scallops: Similarly, coat the scallops with flour for a delicate crust.
  4. Cook the Cape Hake: In a frying pan, cover the bottom with olive oil and cook the Cape Hake fillets for 1 minute on each side. Once cooked, remove, drain, and set aside.
  5. Cook the Scallops: In the same frying pan, cook the scallops similarly to the Cape Hake and then set them aside.
  6. Sauté the Leeks: Strain the oil from the frying pan into another pan and sauté the finely chopped leek until soft but not browned.
  7. Combine Ingredients: Add the Cape Hake and scallops back into the pan with the leeks.
  8. Add White Wine: Pour in the white wine and let it reduce, infusing the seafood with a rich, aromatic flavor.
  9. Add Cooking Cream: Lower the heat, add the cooking cream, and stir to combine. Season with a pinch of salt.
  10. Sweeten the Sauce: Add the honey to the sauce, stirring well to incorporate its sweetness.
  11. Finish Cooking: Allow the sauce to cook for a few minutes until it reaches a smooth, creamy consistency.
  12. Serve: Plate the Cape Hake and scallops, generously drizzling the white wine sauce over the top. Serve immediately for a fresh, comforting seafood experience.
