This fish & chip shop at home, just drop in the fryer and they’re ready to eat. Favourite accompaniments, chips, garden or mushy peas curry sauce, tomato or tartar sauce, and a lemon wedge. Plaice is a very popular fish in northern Europe, especially in Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, and the UK, which border its main fishing area in the North Sea. It’s also found in much smaller quantities in the neighboring seas – the Baltic, the English Channel, and the Atlantic Ocean as far south as Portugal. 170-200g each
Plaice is a good source of vitamin B1 and vitamin B7. Vitamin B1 can also be found in other seafood, such as salmon and mackerel. Vitamin B7 can only be acquired by eating fish. Plaice contains large amounts of the two, which is why it tastes so good!
In the UK, Plaice is only one of two flatfish which can be called “sole” (the other is the Dover sole). Sole tends to refer to larger fish, while plaice refers to smaller ones and their meatier variety.

Delicious well flavoured plaice in a crispy crumb. The fish is of a good thickness. Lovely with tartare sauce ot ketchup but lovely with some parsley sauce. We like it cooked in the oven ans served with potatoes and peas. Its such an easy meal to make just right when you are busy. You get ten in the box and we have found them to all be of good quality.. we have never seen bones so they are ideal for out young grandchildren . Even out two year old granddaughter loves them and she can eat a whole one !!
