Today I show you my great May Plaice recipe. The plaice is a flatfish and tastes best in May. 

In North of Germany plaice is traditionally prepared whole with skin.

So that the preparation of the plaice works wonderfully I have prepared this step by step instruction for you.

I wish you good success and a good appetite!

1. Prepare plaice, what to pay Attention to

First of all I have summarized the most important points for the preparation of May Plaice. Here are my professional cooking tips:

  • Buy the May plaice fresh from the fishmonger.
  • Take care of the cold chain, bring the plaice home quickly and put it in the fridge.
  • Best to prepare the whole fish on the day of purchase.
  • Take 25 minutes to prepare the plaice ready to cook.
  • Prepare the side dishes first, the side dishes are waiting for the plaice.
  • Please use a large, coated pan so that the plaice frying is successful.
  • Use clarified butter or homemade nut butter in combination with sunflower oil to fry the plaice.
  • Make sure you turn the cleaned and cleaned plaice in flour.
  • You can also use a gluten-free flour mixture in addition to wheat flour.
  • Fry the plaice first in a pan, then place it in a preheated oven. Serve the plaice exclusively on hot plates.

You will find every step of the recipe explained with a photo below, now you can start.

The plaice can be served with spinach with potatoes or asparagus with potatoes.

I have decided on green asparagus and early potatoes because it fits so well into the seasons.
