Description

Lemon sole is an oval flat fish with sweet, delicate white flesh. It can be used in any recipe for sole, including the classic sole meunière – a gentle, buttery delight.

The sole family, which also includes Dover, sand and thickback sole, was held in high esteem by the ancient Romans, who called it solea Jovi, or Jupiter’s sandal. During the reign of French king Louis XIV sole became a royal dish, prompting the great French chefs of the 19th century to deploy their skills creating recipes for sole. There is therefore no shortage of ways to prepare lemon sole, whether baking, poaching, grilling or steaming, much of it in the French classical tradition.

Lemon sole is a lean, low-calorie fish, making it suitable for those looking to lose weight while keeping their protein intake at a healthy level.

Our lemon sole are landed in the North Sea.

How We Package Your Fish and Seafood

1. We vacuum pack fish portions in pairs and whole fish individually. Scallops are also vacuum packed, while oysters and lobsters are placed in a box. 
2. Each portion is then clearly labelled with the species, who packed it, the date it was packed and a fresh use-by date.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours.
