Method

  1. Pre-heat a medium-high grill. Grease a large baking sheet with a glug of olive oil.

  2. Arrange the plaice fillets on the baking sheet and grill for 5-6 minutes.

  3. At the same time, heat the remaining olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and stir fry the leeks and peppers for 5 minutes until softened. Spoon on top of the fish, season with black pepper and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Scatter the breadcrumbs and cheese over the top. Grill for a further 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
