A tasty baked plaice recipe which is gluten free, as the (bread) crumbs that are used are crushed cornflakes.
Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F. Add the chopped chives to the softened butter, and season to taste. Set aside to chill.
Take a large oven proof baking tray, and drizzle some rapeseed oil over it, about 2 tablespoons. Put the plaice fillets on the baking tray and turn them over to coat in the oil. Season the plaice fillets with salt and pepper, turning over to season both sides.
Sprinkle the crushed cornflakes (crumbs) over the plaice fillets, turning them over to coat both sides.
Put the plaice in the pre-heated oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until crumbs are crispy and the fish is opaque.
Serve the plaice on heated serving plates, and add a portion of chive butter to the top of each plaice fillet. Serve with new potatoes, peas and lemon wedges, or seasonal vegetables of your choice.
