Cornish Sole (also known as Megrim) is a deep water flatfish commonly caught off the Cornish coast, and is gaining popularity due to its sustainability. There’s good reason to choose Cornish sole beyond it being environmentally friendly too – this flatfish makes for some lovely eating when cooked properly, despite its reputation of being second rate in comparison to its other flatfish cousins. Serve on the bone in a rich olive and tomato sauce (add capers at your discretion) or poach in milk and flake into mashed potatoes along with fresh parsley and lemon zest for some simple fishcakes.
Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
