Dover sole is the king of the sole family, celebrated by celebrity chefs and fishmongers all over the world. It has wonderful, crisp, white flesh that is firm to the touch, unlike most other fish, and has a distinct, refined, sweet flavour. Whatever the occasion, it's a real treat.

One whole fish (approximately between 280g - 400g) choose between oven ready whole fish or fish fillets. We suggest a 300g per portion (one Dover Sole) as standard per person.

Cooking & Storage

From sole bonne femme to sole Veronique, the Dover sole has inspired many famous recipes. It can be baked, grilled, poached, or steamed. Make sure you don't overcook the chicken. Stick to flavoured butters and gentle herbs if you want to concentrate on its singularly delicious flavour. Dover is unusual in that it is frequently too firm to cook right after it is caught. After one or two days, the texture and flavour are usually at their peak.

It's best to eat it right away. Refrigerate between 0°C and 5°C and consume within 2-3 days. If you won't be able to eat it within three days, freeze it on the day of delivery and eat it within three months. Refrigerate overnight to defrost. Do not refreeze.

Fish Preparation Guide

Fresh Fish Filleted:
Fillets are the most commonly used cut. The fish is taken off the bone to create a fillet which is then pin-boned. Fillets cut from larger fish can subsequently be cut into portions also known as Supremes.

Types of Fish: Cod Brill, Dabs, Dover sole, Gurnards, Herring, Lemon Sole, Megrim Sole, Monkfish, Plaice, Pollock, Rainbow, Trout, Salmon, Sardines, Sea Bass and Whiting

Note: While we take great care to remove all bones, we cannot guarantee that they are all gone.

Whole Oven Ready Fish:
Hand prepared in house fish is gutted and scaled, ready for cooking in the oven, BBQ or pan. Fish stays super juicy when cooked on the bone.
