Plaice with lemon parsley butter and crushed potatoes

Ingredients

  1. 300g small new potatoes
  2. Small pack fresh flatleaf parsley
  3. 2 x 150g plaice fillets with skin
  4. 1 lemon
  5. 3 tbsp olive oil
  6. 2 tbsp plain flour
  7. 25g butter

Method

  1. 1. 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 flatleaf parsley.
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. Melt butter in the hot pan, stir in the juice of ½ lemon, a handful of chopped fresh flatleaf 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
