Dover Sole (Whole Fish)

From £22.00 Per Fish £48.89 per KG

Dover sole is the 'king' among smaller flat fish. It is delicious, easy to cook and sustainable. It does fetch a hefty premium over other soles due to the high demand it garners. As a special treat we think it is absolutely worth it! Traditionally it is cooked on the bone, but it works very well off the bone too. We can prepare the whole fish to suit your dish, either whole or pan-ready, with dark skin on or off depending on your taste. One whole fish is enough for a sharing starter for 2 or a generous main course for 1.

The availability of all seafood at market can be impacted by many different factors – Seasonality, bad weather, tidal variations, which boats are landing, or even good old-fashioned fisherman’s luck… and in the current circumstances, unprecedented demand has further added to uncertainty.

Rest assured that we will make every effort to source this fresh product for your order, however, if we are unable to do so for any reason, we will replace it with a frozen alternative.

When fish happen to be plentiful at market, we try to buy a little extra which we expertly prepare and blast freeze, here on site, for just such an eventuality. The replacement should arrive with you frozen. Do not re-freeze seafood that has defrosted.

Recipes & Cooking

Dover sole are considered by some to be one of the 'kings' of the sea, and leading Chefs seem to adore them. The best way to cook whole fish is also one of the simplest - lightly seasoned and grilled with a little butter. Score the skin either lightly oil or put some butter on the fish and season, before putting under a very hot grill for about 6 minutes on each side.
