Plaice with Tartar Sauce Recipe

Plaice with Tartar Sauce Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

100 g/4 oz/1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
1 egg, separated
15 ml/1 tbsp oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

300 ml/0.5 pt/1.25 cups milk
450 g/1 lb plaice, skinned and cut into strips
Corn oil, for deep-frying
150 ml/0.25 pt Tartar Sauce

Method :

Reserve 15 ml/1 tbsp of the flour and whisk the remainder to a batter with the egg yolk, oil, a pinch of salt and the milk. Whisk the egg white until frothy, then fold into the batter. Season the reserved flour with salt and pepper and roll the strips of plaice in it, shaking off any excess. Heat the corn oil to 180C/350F, when a cube of day-old bread will sink to the bottom, rise and brown in 1 minute. Dip the fish in the batter and fry (saute) in the hot oil for about 5 minutes until crisp. Drain well on kitchen paper (paper towels) and serve with the tartar sauce.
