Plaice rolls with blood orange and sake

Plaice rolls with blood orange and sake

It doesn’t always have to meat. I’m a meat lover. But every now and then it has to be fish, just to remember how it tastes like. This little recipe is prepared really quickly and can be served either on a spoon (maybe a smaller portion) or as a starter, along with a crisp salad. It’s up to you, but do try it, the sake goes very well with the blood orange juice.


  • plaice
  • sake
  • vegetable stock
  • blood orange
  • orange zest
