Merluza a la koskera is a classic Basque dish using fresh line-caught hake, which is gently poached in a traditional salsa verde sauce made from chopped garlic, olive oil, fish stock and chopped parsley and served with tender white asparagus, fresh peas and hard-boiled eggs. My version is slightly refined by pan-frying the hake beforehand and serving it with sauté white asparagus, salsa verde and soft-boiled quail eggs.
