Dover Sole Information

The king of the soles, this superb fish has inspired many classic dishes such as poached sole bone femme, sole Veronique and sole a la meunière. With a dark brown skin and a long and narrower shaped body than other flatfish. Dover sole has crisp white flesh, firm to touch, with an almost sweet taste. Dover’s range in size from 340g – 1.3 kg. As it is often to firm to cook immediately after being caught, it is usually best after one or two days, when both texture and flavour are enhanced. Fish of 400 – 450g are perfect for serving whole. 

Catch Method
Dover sole is caught during the warmer months, in the Cornish waters, by day boat trawlers.
