Recipe by: Seafish

Serves: 4

Course: Dinner

  • 4 x 170g skinless fillets of plaice
  • 175ml reduced-salt fish stock
  • 175ml white wine
  • Sprig rosemary, leaves only
  • 100g button mushrooms, sliced
  • Small bag of baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp reduced-fat crème fraiche
  • 500g steamed new potatoes in their skins
  • 160g steamed green beans

  1. Put the stock, wine and rosemary into a shallow saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer until it’s reduced to half the original quantity. Add the mushrooms and simmer for a further 2-3 minutes.
  2. Loosely roll up the fillets of fish and put on top of the mushrooms. Cover with a lid and gently poach the fish for around 5-8 minutes, or until it’s cooked through.

  4. Add the crème fraiche to the stock and mushrooms and gently heat through (don’t allow it to boil or it may curdle) and pour over the fish.
  5. Serve with the potatoes, asparagus and green beans.
