Lemon sole with caper butter
Delicious, elegant and simple
Lemon sole are a species of flat fish, similar to the larger and more expensive dover sole, or the less common megrim (sometimes called megrim sole). They're small but delicious, with a delicate flavour. Your fishmonger or fish counter will often have the fillets so preparing a whole flat fish from scratch isn't a problem.
Like most delicate fish they don't need very complicated cooking or recipes to make the most of them; in fact the simplest is often best. They pair well with sharp, rich and French flavours like lemon and butter in this recipe. They're also good with a few brown Morecambe Bay shrimps thrown in the pan at the end. Serve with seasonal green veg and some new potatoes if you need a bit more sustenance.
