Dan's Grilled Sole or Plaice Recipe

A very good source of vitamin B12 and A and D vitamins, plaice is also an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids.

Born with eyes either side of their heads, plaice are beautifully camouflaged on their ocean floor habitat by their dark colour and characteristic orange spots. As they grow their eyes migrate to the right side of the head. They live at depths of up to 250 metres and migrate over large distances.
