Whole roast plaice with anchovy and sage butter, new potatoes and sea vegetables
- July 2018
- Serves 2
- Hands-on time 30 min, oven time 50-55 min
The combination of anchovy and sage is known in Italy as ‘il tartufo di pescatore’ or ‘the fisherman’s truffle’. Add a beautiful buttery whole roast plaice along with waxy new potatoes and salty sea vegetables, and you have a real catch on your hands.

Sea vegetables are available in Waitrose and Sainsbury’s and from finefoodspecialist.co.uk. We used samphire and sea aster, but if you can’t find any you can use spinach instead.
Savoury, salty flavours here suit a lighty oaked, slightly smoky white such
as a fine Graves bordeaux blanc.
