Fresh Plaice fillet
2 plaice fillets
300g small new potatoes
Small pack fresh parsley
2 x 150g plaice fillets with skin
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp plain flour
Boil potatoes, halved, in salted water for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain, return to the pan and roughly crush with a fork. Season and stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil and a handful chopped fresh parsley.
Meanwhile, season plaice fillets and dust with a little plain flour. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the fish, skin-side down, and cook for 2 minutes. Carefully turn over and cook for a further 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer to 2 serving plates.
Melt butter in the hot pan, stir in the juice of ½ lemon, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and some seasoning. Drizzle over the plaice and spoon the potatoes alongside. Serve with the remaining ½ lemon, cut into wedges, and cooked broccoli, if you like.
