Lemon Sole (Whole, Pan Ready)

Lemon Sole (Whole, Pan Ready)

From £8.00 Per Fish £21.62 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! This pan-ready option is head off and trimmed, and we can either leave the skin on or take it off, depending on your preference. One whole fish will work as a sharing starter for 2 or a generous main course for 1.

  • Landed daily across all the main south west markets, including Looe, Newlyn and Plymouth
  • We source net-caught day boat fish
  • Low calorie, low fat and high protein fish, which also contains plenty of minerals and vitamins
  • Pan-ready preparation suits both the pan and the oven, or better still, a combination of both

Recipes & Cooking

Pan ready lemon 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, asparagus and parsley butter.
