Take a look at our video below to find out how to correctly fillet Lemon Sole. Perfect for a delicious fish dish, at home or as a part of your top notch seafood restaurant menu. Lemon Sole is native to Northern Europe and is a flatfish with a firm texture. For little to no wastage, try using the small bones of the Lemon Sole while cooking for additional flavour. Alternatively, the smaller bones are still removable. The flesh of the Lemon Sole is known to be both sweet and gentle, which is why it is a popular choice amongst fish connoisseurs. Lemon Sole is most readily available during late spring to early autumn.
Due to the texture and thickness of the skin, the filleting of Lemon Sole can be seen as a tricky process. But it doesn’t have to be. This video shows the most efficient way to remove the skin from the flesh to ensure the best preparation for cooking.
There are several ways for Lemon Sole to be prepared and served. We suggest grilling, baking or steaming with a herb and lemon sauce or light creamy sauce, to best compliment the flesh of the Lemon Sole.
