Whole Lemon Sole
Our new Spring menu has recently launched with the main menu consisting of some excellent seafood and meat dishes. For the next instalment of our Recipe Book we will focus on our Whole lemon sole dish with brown shrimp, seaweed and lemon butter. Lemon sole is a flatfish native to shallow seas around Northern Europe . It’s a flounder (the family that includes plaice and turbot). It has a delicate, sweet white flesh and is best cooked simply and served with a light sauce.
Keeping in line with this simple yet tasty approach we oven cook our lemon sole with some herbs, a flavoursome lemon butter sauce.
So, for this dish you will need:
- 1 whole lemon sole (remove head and top skin)
For the sauce:
- 150g butter
- 50g dry seaweed
- 1 zest & juice lemon
- 20g pink peppercorns
As sole is a mild flavoured fish we suggest you go for a zesty and refreshing white wine to balance the delicate fish flavour.
