Saturday 19th Jan – lemon sole

Never been a fan of flatfish. I like fish with a bit of body. Flatfish I always want for a mouthful rather than the picky little bits. I guess in reality Halibut is a flatfish but the filets are so big it doesnt count.

For this reason the lemon sole in the freezer has been there a couple of months. An awkward shape taking up more space than it deserved.

Looked for a few ideas online to inspire but as with most fish simple seemed the best option.
