  • butter
  • plaice 2 whole, plate-sized
  • small capers 2 tbsp
  • small peeled prawns 150g
  • dill a bunch, chopped
  • lemon 1, cut into wedges


  • Step 1

    Butter a baking sheet and lay the fish on top, dark skin-side up. Grill until the fish is cooked through and the skin has bubbled and blistered – how long this takes will depend on the thickness of the fish about 2-5 minutes. Once cooked, peel off the top skin, remove the head if you like, and slide onto two hot plates.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat a knob of butter in a frying pan and fry the capers until sizzling, then add the prawns and dill and toss everything together. Spoon over the fish and serve with lemon wedges.
