Hake is a fish that is a member of the cod family. Although hake is available year round on the eastern seaboard, it is not readily available in land locked Indiana. So, should you try this you can substitute any other mild, delicately textured fish such as flounder, haddock, pollock or halibut. I used talapia and it was just fine. The other hard to find ingredient is cured Spanish chorizo. The Spanish chorizo is a sausage of smoked pork that is flavored with garlic and spices that's milder than Mexican chorizo. Once again, I substituted the Mexican chorizo and the dish did not suffer for it. In fact, we loved the spiciness.
