Recipes & Cooking
Megrim sole fillets are a bit more robust than Lemon sole and have a sweet flavour. Lightly season and oil and cook skin side down under the grill - they will only take a few minutes. Serve with new potatoes and dress with a little lemon butter. Alternatively you could it à la meunière, which is a classic, usually done with Dover sole, but works very well with Megrim too.
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.
