Effortless plaice and vegetables

Home alone this week, as my primary victim is enjoying a week sailing in the sun in the Greek Islands.  So, after catching up with work today, wanted to take full advantage of the opportunity to cook fish (primary victim is not keen on the flavour, and HATES the smell) - but to also have time available for lots of faffing.  I find that faffing is an activity best enjoyed in quiet me moments.

So, this took 10 minutes (if that) to put together, and left me with a full hour to enjoy faffing / mooching - and a little bit of plotting.

Then, make a hash of putting it out, but it was delish nontheless.


1 tbsp olive oil
1 leek
Handful green beans
I clove garlic
4 big (or more smaller) mushrooms
4 medium sized new potatoes
2 tomatoes
2 plaice fillets
1 lemon

Do this:-

1.  Chop leek and sautee in olive oil.
2.  Add chopped green beans, chopped mushrooms, sliced potatoes and crushed garlic, stir around for a minute.
3.  Add a cup of water.  Simmer for a couple of minutes.  Move veg around to form a single layer.
4.  Layer fish on top.  Add tomato and lemon slices.
5.  Season, cover - stick in oven for about 30 minutes (or an hour in this case).
