Chef's Note

Hoki (Macruronus novaezelandiae), also known as blue hake or New Zealand whiptail, is a long species of fish that lives in the waters of the southern Pacific. It is fished in the open seas off the coasts of Chile, New Zealand and Australia. You can substitute any firm white-fleshed fish.
