Recipes & Cooking
Pan ready megrim sole, as you would expect can be cooked in a pan! We recommend you use a pan that can go in the oven too, as starting off on the hob and finishing the cooking in the oven is like a 'best of both worlds'. You get the caramelisation from the heat on the hob and can finish off the cooking in a hot oven. Score the dark skin on the fish and cook with a little oil or butter dark skin down until brown and caramelised. Then flip over and finish off in the oven. Serve with new potatoes, spinach and parsley butter.
Health & Nutrition
Megrim Sole is a low fat, low calorie and high protein fish. It is an excellent source of healthy Omega 3 oils, containing 644 mg per 100 g of edible fish, which is almost 5 times the amount found in the more popular Lemon Sole! It also has lots of beneficial vitamins and minerals, which are so vital for a healthy diet.
