Buyer's guide

Lemon sole is widely available and a sustainable choice. It can be bought whole or in fillets.


Lemon sole fillets can be rolled around a stuffing and steamed or baked; the fish also goes well with the lighter flavours of Asian cooking such as lemongrass, spring onions and ginger. Try wrapping fillets of lemon sole in prosciutto or slicing and breadcrumbing them to make goujons. Lemon sole can also be grilled, steamed or baked whole.
