Recipes & Cooking

Whole Cornish sole are fantastic to bake. Score the skin and lightly oil and season before putting into a very hot oven for about 15 minutes. You could cook the whole fish along with potatoes and your favourite vegetables, as a whole meal in a tray. We love Cornish sole with a herb or garlic butter and seasonal vegetables.

Cornish 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.
