Lemon sole is a flatfish, and is actually a member of the flounder family rather than the sole.

‘Lemon’ is also a bit of a misnomer, as contrary to popular belief, the flesh doesn’t taste like lemon at all. Instead, it’s theorised that the skin of lemon sole has a similar texture to its citrus counterpart, hence the connection.

Despite the trickery of the name, lemon sole is a lovely fish: texture-wise, the flesh is delicate and light, with a fine flavour.

Whole fillets do well fried in breadcrumbs and served with tartare sauce for a Friday night treat but can be delicious simply pan fried and served alongside some seasonal greens.


  • Contains essential omega 3 fatty acids
  • Sourced from sandy sea beds around Plymouth and Looe
  • Available Jan-Oct
  • Serve simply with brown butter
