Am all about da plaice, 'bout the plaice, no haddock! (Get it?) #eattheseasons
The humble plaice has long been popular in the UK, although it is largely overlooked in higher-end gastronomy and very rarely features on the menus of top restaurants. This is perhaps due to its historical associations as a food for the poor, or because of the connotations of bland deep-fried breaded plaice served in lazy pubs and motorway service stations across the country.
Judged on its own merits, plaice is a superb fish possessing a fine, moist texture and subtle but distinctive flavour. Given the right treatment it makes a simple, healthy, inexpensive and absolutely delicious lunch or supper.
Plaice is available throughout the year although the quality varies. From summer through to mid-winter (outside the spawning season) it is generally fleshier and tastier.
Bright orange spots and clear protruding eyes are signs of fresh plaice.

Sole Veronique was created by Escoffier in 1898 to celebrate the opening of the Veronique opera in London.
We use plaice, but any flat fish works for this dish.
