Pan-fried Spiced Plaice Fillets

25 Oct

Fish to me is a must have in my diet. It is a versatile source of protein and gives a pleasant change from meat or chicken. It is very light and healthy which makes it just great in general. Now I know some people don’t like fish and that’s absolutely fine with me but to the fish lover’s out there this is a must try recipe. It is very simple and involves only a few steps. The only thing to keep an eye on here is to not over cook the delicate fish. It will keep cooking even after you have removed it from the pan. The spices used really bring out the sweetness of the fish and make it shine.

4 plaice fillets

1tbsp sweet paprika

1/4tsp cumin

pinch of salt

2tbsp plain flour
