Lemon sole recipes

Native to the shallow seas of northern Europe the lemon sole is something of a misnomer, it doesn’t actually taste of lemon, nor is it a sole, but instead a flounder from the same family as turbot and halibut. It gets its name from its pale yellow colour. The lemon sole is a delicate fish with a sweet fresh taste. Its best kept simple so try it grilled, fried, with light fresh flavours.
