Lemon sole has delicate, sweet white flesh and is best cooked simply, either grilled or fried, and served with a light sauce.
You can have the head off and the fins trimmed to cook it whole, or have it filleted. A fish of ~600g will produce two fillets which will feed two people, there will be a few small bones at the top of each fillet.
If cooking the fish whole, we would recommend a Sole of ~400g per person. Larger sizes are better shared!
Please note that Lemon Sole is priced at £2.20/100g head on price. Each fish is different so the weights and prices are indicitive, meaning their may be a small additional amount to pay on delivery.
If ordered whole, the fish will be delivered gutted, usually with the head on. If you would like the head removing please let us know in the notes section on the check-out page.
