Lemon Sole (350 - 450g)
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.
Contains essential omega 3 fatty acids
Sourced from sandy sea beds around Plymouth and Looe
Serve simply with brown butter
