Plaice Provencal

Serves 4


4 large plaice fillets

2 small red onions

120ml/4fl oz/½ cup vegetable stock

60ml/4 tbsp dry red wine

1 garlic clove, crushed

2 courgettes, sliced

1 yellow pepper, seeded and sliced

400g/14 oz can chopped tomatoes

15ml/1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme\

salt and black pepper


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas4.  Lay the plaice skin-side down and, holding the tail end, push a sharp knife between the skin and flesh in a sawing movement, Hold the knife at a slight angle with the blade towards the skin.

Cut each onion into 8 wedges.  Put into a heavy based sauce pan with the stock.  Cover and simmer for 5 mins.  Uncover and continue to cook, stirring occassionally, until the stock has reduced entirely.  Add the wine and garlic clove to the pan and continue to cook until the onions are soft.

Add the courgettes, yellow pepper, tomatoes and thyme and season to taste.  Simmer for 3 mins.  Spoon the sauce into a large casserole.

Fold each fillet in half and put on top of the sauce.  Cover and cook in the oven for 15-20 mins, until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.  Serve with mixed green salad.
