Buyer's guide

Plaice is available fresh or frozen and can be bought whole or as fillets.

Preparation

Plaice cooks very quickly - fillets should only need a total cooking time of 4-5 minutes, whether grilled, fried or poached. Use the poaching liquid to make a sauce, or coat fillets of plaice in egg and breadcrumbs and pan fry in butter and a little oil.
