Lemon Sole (Whole)

From £14.00 Per Fish £35.00 per KG

Lemon sole is delicious fish that interestingly is neither a real sole, nor does it taste of lemon. It is a member of the plaice family, although it eats closer to Dover Sole than Plaice. It has delicate, sweet white flesh and is best cooked simply, either grilled or fried, and served with a light sauce and (of course) a squeeze of lemon! We can prepare the whole fish to suit your dish, either whole or pan-ready, with skin on or off depending on your taste. One whole fish will work as 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

Whole lemon 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 lemon sole with Mediterranean vegetables like red onions, peppers and tomatoes.
