  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Brush the hake fillets with olive oil and season them with salt, black pepper, and paprika.
  • Place the hake fillets on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  • While the hake is grilling, heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the cubed butternut squash and olive oil to the skillet and sauté for 5-7 minutes until the squash is tender.
  • Add the curry powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper to the skillet and stir well.
  • Use a hand blender or food processor to puree the butternut squash mixture until smooth.
  • Steam the long-stem broccoli until tender and then toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to make the yogurt sauce.
  • To serve, spread a layer of the curried pureed butternut on each plate, then place a grilled hake fillet on top of the pureed butternut.
  • Add a serving of the long stem broccoli to each plate, then drizzle the yogurt sauce over the top.
  • Pairing with Bertha 2021 Semillon:
  • The citrus and herbal notes in Bertha 2021 Semillon complement the spices in the curried butternut squash and the grilled hake. Its crisp acidity also balances the richness of the yogurt sauce.
