Option A - Cornish Crab & Roast Tomato Soup with Sole Meunière & Asparagus

From £55.00 Per Meal for Two

This gorgeous soup, with its luxuriantly silky tomato base and boasting a depth of flavour highlighting the sweetness of the crab, and undercut with a little heat, is the perfect way to start a superior seafood meal. Bursting with taste, and simplicity itself to prepare, each pouch contains 400g of soup, (frozen). Simply defrost, warm through and serve with some nice crusty bread. Heaven!

This beautiful Dover Sole dish brings together the spring seas and fields of Cornwall on one uplifting plate. We’ve taken our sustainably fished and, to be frank, stunning Cornish Dover Sole and paired it with a nutty, zesty Meuniere sauce (that’s Buerre Noisette with lemon and parsley for the unfamiliar) that gently brings out the savoury, satisfying flavours of this firm, velvety fish.

The mild, moist climate of Cornwall also means that we always lead the field when it comes to early season crops. First up is our iconic asparagus, grown on Tregassow Farm on the south coast of the county. The family have been growing asparagus here for years and are true experts in farming the green spears that slowly grow in our climate, allowing a deeper flavour to develop than imported alternatives. The season is short though, so make sure you make the most of it! Cornwall is also usually the first county in the UK to produce a new season potato crop. These nutty, dense new potatoes, grown on Colwith Farm a mere 6 miles away from our premises, have a fresh flavour and waxy texture that makes them all the more savoury, and the perfect partner to our Dover Sole and buttery, lemony sauce.

Recipes & Cooking

Cornish CRAB & ROASTED TOMATO SOUP Method:

  • Simply defrost
  • warm through and serve with some nice crusty bread.

Dover Sole Meunière Method:

Defrost the Dover Sole.
Lightly dust the Dover Sole with seasoned flour (plain flour, salt and pepper) and shake off the excess.
Preheat a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat, add enough sunflower oil to thinly cover the base of the pan. Add the Dover Sole carefully and shallow fry for 2 minutes until golden in colour. Reduce heat if necessary, to avoid burning the fish.
Flip over the Dover Sole and continue to cook the other side for a further minute.
Add the Meunière Butter to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes. The butter will melt and start to foam. Baste the Sole with the foaming butter.
Remove from the pan and onto a plate, pour over some of the butter and serve with Cornish new potatoes and Tregassow Farm asparagus.
