Preparation

Plaice is one of the most popular flatfish, prized for its sweet and mild flavour.

With mottled brown skin covered in orange spots, plaice camouflages itself on the seabed. It spends most of its time lying in wait for unsuspecting crustaceans to scuttle by and become lunch.

Because of its relative inactivity, the flesh of plaice of wonderfully soft and flaky and can be used in all manner of ways, including fish tacos or fish and chips for those who favour crunch, or baked whole, simply with lemon and parsley butter for a lovely main course.
