Hake, a flaky, mild fish in the same family as cod, can pair well with almost anything, especially a savory sauté of beluga lentils and Brussels sprouts. Named for their caviar-like appearance, beluga lentils aren’t as fragile as other varieties and remain intact as they cook. Splashes of acidity from vinegar and lemon juice along with some fresh herbs make the perfect finishing touches for this hearty meal.
