Hake, Chorizo, Bean & Spinach

Pairing your Nutribuddy Breakfast Shake or Shake Complete for your breakfast/lunch with a healthy, protein and vitamin-rich dinner (such as this nutritious hake recipe) is sure to keep you feeling and looking healthy, happy and radiant.

Did you know that fish is one of the healthiest foods in the world? We’re not even exaggerating – the health benefits of fish are super impressive:

– Packed with top-quality protein, vitamins and minerals
– High in omega-3 fatty acids – these bad boys can boost your mood, increase your metabolism and reduce your risk of lots of nasty diseases
– Best dietary source of vitamin D, which many people are deficient in
– Associated with a lower risk of becoming overweight or obese
– Can improve the condition of hair and skin

To be honest, we could go on and on! We always recommend that our customers who eat fish eat at least 2-3 portions a week, and this is one of our favourite weekday recipes. It’s not too tricky to make and the combo of fish, beans and chorizo is guaranteed to fill you up all evening.

If you don’t eat meat or fish, we’ve got plenty of healthy, tasty recipes for you too – check out our vegan and vegetarian recipe pages.

Chorizo, Beans & Spinach with Hake Recipe

Prep & cooking time: 30 minutes | Serves: 2


- 1 tsp coconut oil

- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 260g spinach

- ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika

  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan and add the chorizo, crushing the meat until broken up and golden.
  2. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until soft and golden.
  3. Put the spinach in a colander and pour over boiled water to wilt, then run under the cold tap. Squeeze out the excess water and set aside.
  4. Line a baking tray with foil and drizzle a little oil all over. Place the fish on top. Sprinkle over the paprika and drizzle with some oil.
  5. Tip the chilli into the pan with the chorizo and fry for 1 minute.
