Plaice and sweet potato mash
- Preparation and cooking time
- A little work
- Serves 4
- 250g Sweet potato, (roughly one big potato or two little ones), peeled and finely chopped
- 100g Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 1tbsp Olive oil
- 170g Plaice fillet, boneless
- 3tbsp Milk
- 15g Butter, diced
- 40g Parmesan, grated

In a small, lidded saucepan, steam or boil the sweet potato for around 10 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Drain and set aside.
- STEP 2
Place cherry tomatoes in a non-stick pan and fry with oil for four minutes or until soft. If you are using the oven for another recipe, you can roast them for extra sweetness.
- STEP 3
Put the plaice into a lidded microwave dish, add milk and butter. Cover but leave the vent open (or pierce the clingfilm if you are using it as a cover) and cook for two minutes on full power or till tender (for 700w microwave, do adjust cooking time according to your appliance’s specs).
- STEP 4
Drain the plaice fillets but keep the cooking liquid. Check for any bones and flake with a fork or knife to remove the skin and check for any bones.
- STEP 5
Place fish with its cooking liquid, tomatoes, sweet potato and Parmesan and mash to desired consistency.
- STEP 6
Add one tablespoon of water if mixture is too dry.
