Andrew MacKenzie's quick and healthy steamed plaice recipe pairs the flat fish with fragrant ginger and Thai basil, and benefits from the gentle heat of a steam oven. If using a regular oven, add a dash of fish stock to the bag before sealing, and cook at around 180°C for 10-15 minutes.


Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:

"Flat fish like plaice is full of protein and B vitamins which helps to keep your heart and nervous system healthy and helps your body to release energy to fight tiredness and fatigue. Serve with plenty of steamed greens and a little rice for fibre."
