Peanut Plaice

Use ordinary raw peanuts, not the roasted or salted varieties, for this recipe. You can leave the skins on or remove them, before chopping, by rubbing them between your fingers. The peanuts can be chopped in a coffee grinder, blender or food processor, but do not chop too finely or the coating will not be crunchy. To make 40 g (1 1/2 oz) toasted breadcrumbs, toast 4 thin slices of bread until golden on each side. Cut off the crusts, then work for a few seconds in a blender or food processor until reduced to crumbs.
