• 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


  • STEP 1

    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.
