Fish of the Week – Plaice

Plaice, is one of our most common and also most popular flat fish.  We however, think it’s time for the Plaice to graduate from being battered and served with chips.  So this week we will be championing everything plaice and giving you some recipes to try with this versatile and sustainable fish.

Roast Whole Plaice with Vine Tomatoes

Ingredients <Serves 2>

  • 2x Trimmed Whole Plaice
  • 500g Vine Tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 knobs of butter
  • oil


  • Give your plaice a rinse under a cold tap and then make three cuts across the back of each plaice.
  • Drizzle the oil in to an over proof dish and season the dish, lay the plaice on top of the oil and thoroughly season the fish.
  • Lay the vine tomatoes around the edges of the fish and then roast in a medium oven for around 20-30 minutes.
  • Just before the end of cooking put the butter on top of the plaice, once it has melted take the fish and tomatoes out of the oven and serve.
