Product Information
  • Each pack has one whole, gutted Dover sole
  • Try our pan fried Dover sole meuniere with clams recipe
  • One 400g fish is a good serving for one main course

This superb fish needs no introduction. It tastes so good that you should cook it simply; grill or bake with just a minimum of herbs. Beware that the midriff is a lot thicker than the tail, so position carefully in your grill so as not to overcook the tail end. It would be a pity not to savour every morsel!

If you wanted something easier, we do sell Dover sole fillets.

How you've been using our whole Dover sole...

  • "Amazing quality and cooked it as suggested with the clams"
