  • 8 small plaice fillets skinned, about 2 1/2 oz each
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 pint white wine
  • 1/4 pint chicken stock
  • 2 green leeks cleaned and cut into matchstick strips
  • 4 tablespoons low-calorie mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons natural low-fat yogurt
  • 1 thin slice fresh root ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon mild curry powder
  • small croutons to garnish


  • Lay the plaice fillets down, skinned sides uppermost, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and ginger. Roll up and secure with wooden cocktail sticks.
  • Scatter the onion in a large frying pan; lay the plaice on top and add the white wine and stock. Cover the pan and simmer gently for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile simmer the strips of leek in boiling water for 3 minutes.
  • Remove the plaice paupiettes and keep warm. Place the drained strips of leek around the fish.
  • Mix the mayonnaise with the yogurt. Squeeze the root ginger in a garlic press to extract the juice and add to the mixture with the curry powder and seasonings.
  • Arrange two paupiettes on each plate and garnish with the strips of leek and croutons. Serve the sauce separately.
  • The croutons for this dish are made by stamping out crescents from thinly sliced bread and toasting them slowly until crisp
