Plaice is a popular fish with a good flavour and a fine texture. The white underside fillet can be bought separately and as the skin is very tender, it tends to melt into the flesh during the cooking and can therefore be eaten.
Plaice is suitable for grilling, frying, goujons, rolling and stuffing, steaming and poaching.
This sumptuous fish dish tastes a million dollars yet can be assembled and cooked in just 10 minutes - who says special-occasion food demands all day in the kitchen?
A good way to avoid making breadcrumbs, and therefore save time, is to keep a packet of polenta (cornmeal) in the cupboard. It makes an excellent coating for all types of fish.
