Our Cornish Plaice is hand-selected and expertly prepared by our professional team every day. All fresh fish fillets, portions, and oven-ready whole fish are vacuumed sealed, labelled, and packaged in an eco-friendly WoolCool insulated recyclable box for maximum freshness. Fish can be kept refrigerated at home between 0 and 5 degrees Celsius and eaten within 2-3 days, or frozen on the day of delivery and eaten within 3 months.
In the United Kingdom, Plaice has always held a special place in our hearts. It's known for its tender, white flesh and sweet, subtle, slightly salty flavour. Plaice is often overlooked by top chefs and restaurants these days, but its moist texture and delicate flavour make it ideal for a quick, healthy, and tasty meal.
Our entire fresh plaice ranges in size from 300g to 1kg, making them ideal for a shared appetiser for two or a filling main course for one.
We can also fillet a whole fish for you if you prefer. The top (dark) and bottom (white) sides of the plaice are used to make fillets. The thicker fillet comes from the darker side.
Rich in vitamin B12, vitamin B6, selenium and phosphorous
ALLERGENS: Contains fish / Prepared in the same fishmongers as shellfish.
Fish Preparation Guide
Fillets are the most commonly used cut. The fish is taken off the bone to create a fillet which is then pin-boned. Fillets cut from larger fish can subsequently be cut into portions also known as Supremes.

Whole Oven Ready Fish:
Hand prepared in house fish is gutted and scaled, ready for cooking in the oven, BBQ or pan. Fish stays super juicy when cooked on the bone.
Cooking & Storage
