Lemon Sole (350 - 450g)

In stock
350-450g, feeds 1
Good Seafood Guide Score: 4/5
Caught locally

Lemon sole is a flatfish, and is actually a member of the flounder family rather than the sole.

‘Lemon’ is also a bit of a misnomer, as contrary to popular belief, the flesh doesn’t taste like lemon at all. Instead, it’s theorised that the skin of lemon sole has a similar texture to its citrus counterpart, hence the connection.

Despite the trickery of the name, lemon sole is a lovely fish: texture-wise, the flesh is delicate and light, with a fine flavour.

Whole fillets do well fried in breadcrumbs and served with tartare sauce for a Friday night treat but can be delicious simply pan fried and served alongside some seasonal greens.

Sourced from sandy sea beds around Plymouth and Looe

Please note that due to market conditions, sometimes dictated by the weather on rare occasions we may have to send you frozen fish, which could arrive partially-defrosted.
