Our Plaice fillets are indeed a culinary delight that should not be missed. This great flatfish, with its distinctive, vibrant orange spots on the dark side, has been a British staple for centuries, caught off our shores and enjoyed by generations. If you're new to flatfish, Plaice is the perfect starting point.
Plaice boasts a mild and sweet flavour that strong seasonings can easily overwhelm. Therefore, it is best to keep your recipes simple, allowing the fish's natural taste to shine through. One popular preparation method is breading and shallow frying, which results in a crispy and satisfying texture. However, Plaice is equally delicious when kept plain and prepared through baking or grilling. It pairs wonderfully with a refreshing garden salad or classic homemade chips.
For a quick and delightful meal, try pan-frying Plaice with a squeeze of lemon juice and a touch of butter. This simple yet flavorful combination enhances the natural qualities of the fish, resulting in a nutritious and delicious dish. The versatility of Plaice makes it an excellent choice for various cooking styles, allowing you to explore different flavours and techniques.
Not only does Plaice offer a delectable eating experience, but it also provides valuable nutritional benefits. As a source of protein and low in fat, Plaice makes for a satisfying and health-conscious meal option. Additionally, it contains Biotin, a vitamin that contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, supporting your overall well-being.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to savour our Plaice fillets' delightful flavours and nutritional benefits. They will become a favourite meal choice with their mild taste and versatility in the kitchen.
