1. Spread out the plaice fillets skinned sides uppermost. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, lemon rind and parsley, and roll each one up.
2. For the sauce, chop the courgettes and cook together with the stock, lemon rind and garlic until just tender.
3. Blend the cooked courgettes and their liquid until smooth.
4. Put the rolled plaice fillets into a shallow pan; add the milk and salt and pepper to taste. Poach the fish gently until it is just tender, about 8-10 minutes, then drain, reserving the liquid. Put on a warm serving dish.
