COOKING TIP: Be confident and keep it simple with Dover Sole. Many people are a bit intimidated by this fish, but there really is no need. Just think of it as a very posh Lemon Sole and you are unlikely to go far wrong. We recommend you take it pan readied and skinned as the dark skin in particular is quite thick. Grilled or pan fried like this with a lemon and parsley butter is simple and brings the best out of the fish.
HEALTH FACT: Dover Sole is a good source of Omega 3 providing 644 mg per 100 g of fish.

FRESH DOVER SOLE

Dover Sole is undoubtedly one of the most highly prized fish landed and as such is something to savour on special occasions. It is well worth it though with a firm and velvety texture and delicious flavours. Chefs have long had this fish on their top menus, and now you can too!

A whole fish usually weighs around 500g. It can be cooked as a whole fish or filleted, and works well both ways. If you ask us to send whole (using the menu below) there will be no weight loss.

If you ask us to pan ready the fish with skin on, we will trim the fins off and remove the head. This will reduce the delivered weight of each fish to approximately 420g.

If you ask us to pan ready the fish skin off, we will trim it, remove the head and the skin. This will reduce the delivered weight of each fish to 400g.

One whole fish will be enough as a starter for 2 or a main for 1.

fresh lemon sole
COOKING TIP: If you take lemons whole we recommend you have it skin on. Score the fish on both sides, season with Cornish seasalt and pepper, put a few pieces of butter onto it and cook it under a very hot grill. Squeeze some lemon juice over it just before serving - simply delicious! For fillets try them skinned with white crab meat rolled up on them. Put a small knob of butter on each on and cook in a hot oven. Season with Cornish Seasalt and Butter and a quick squeeze of lemon is all you need before serving.
HEALTH FACT: Lemon Sole is a good source of Omega 3 providing 140 mg per 100 g of fish.

Whole Lemon Sole with Port & Truffle Butter

Lemon Sole is a beautiful fish, landed around our coast throughout the year. It has a delicate flavour and works wonderfully with our Port & Truffle Butter.

The fish will be skinned and pan-ready for you to either pan-fry or bake, adding the butter at the very end of cooking.

The fish will arrive fresh and the butter portion frozen. Fresh shelf-life is 5 days and they both freeze well.

We recommend this for a lighter evening meal between Christmas & New Year, or as a main course for non-turkey eaters!
