Wild Harbour Flat Fish

Fresh Cornish Plaice

Wild Harbour

Cornish Day Boat Plaice

Plaice has always had a place in our hearts in the UK. It’s much loved for its sweet, subtle, slightly salty flavour and tender, white flesh. These days plaice is rather too often overlooked by top chefs and restaurants, but its moist texture and delicate taste make it ideal for a simple, healthy and delicious meal.

FLAVOUR: Medium | TEXTURE: Soft | IN SEASON: May to February


Plaice Information

Unlike Dover Sole, Plaice is best eaten as fresh as possible, as the flavour quickly fades. Ranging from 230g to 2kg, the whole fish is easily identified by its distinctive orange spots, which also give an indication of the freshness the brighter the spots, the fresher the Plaice. It has as pronounced a flavour as Lemon Sole, but it takes sauces and other flavours very well and is great for battering. 

Seasonality: May – Feb
