We are going to chop the onion and the tomato. Heat the olive oil and fry the onion first for a couple of minutes. We add the tomato, stir and leave for about three more minutes. We empty the rice, stir and salt. Add the fish stock until the rice is coated. Sprinkle the ginger, half the curry and leave on the fire, over low heat, for about 10 minutes.

We cut the hake into pieces that we put in a bowl. Season them with the other half of the curry, salt and pepper. When the first ten minutes have passed, add the fish to the rice, sprinkle the lemon juice, cover and leave on the fire until the rice has absorbed all the fish stock.
