Fresh Brittany Lemon Sole
$319 per kg
Despite the name, lemon sole doesn’t actually taste anything like lemon, but rather has a sweet, delicate flavour. The name instead, refers to the shape of the fish, which is rather lemon-like. The fish isn’t actually a sole either, but a flounder. Though not the same family as the Dover sole, the two are quite interchangeable. The average lemon sole is around 30cm in size (but they can reach up to 65cm) and has a white belly and mottled brown skin.
Due to its delicate flavour and thin fillets, care must be taken when cooking lemon sole. Cooking the fish whole is the guaranteed way to success here; it’s quick, minimal fuss, and the smaller fish are a perfect portion for one. You can serve up on show-stopping platters, or it’s easy enough to fillet once cooked– the tough brown skin will peel away easily, then the flesh should come away from the bones perfectly.
