Spicy Plaice

Posted by Information 12/11/2014 0 Comment(s) Fish Recipes,

This combination of spices brings out the sweetness of the fish. Do not be tempted to overcook these delicate fillets –  they will continue to cook once removed from the heat.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves 4

  • 4 plaice fillets, skinned and halved lengthways
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil

Mix together the paprika, cumin, salt and the flour in a small flat bowl.

Dip the fish fillets in the spicy flour, tapping away any excess mixture.

Heat the oil into a frying pan and once hot, add the fish. Cook for 2 minutes each side.  Remove and allow to stand for a minute.

Serve immediately with green beans and a yogurt and cucumber dressing.
