This beautiful version of Lemon Sole is so tasty – it simply melts in your mouth. Like most flat fish, it is very easy and quick to cook. Lemon Sole in Creamy Tarragon Sauce – this is a lovely, easy recipe to make, and the combination of the tarragon and the wine do something really special to the flavours. Lemon sole has a sweet and delicate taste.
I also love Dover Sole – it’s a bit meatier then standard sole and it seems that capers are being used more and more for this kind of fish. Please try this flat fish and let me know what you think of the flavours. Amongst my favourite fish, I must not forget plaice! Often, if we have a fish and chip take away on a beach walk I don’t go for haddock or cod, but I choose my favourite and that is plaice – it’s a little bit more money, but trust me – it’s worth every penny, such a beautiful fish, you can taste the ocean as soon as you take a bite.
I dry my own herbs from my garden, especially tarragon – it’s a very nice herb to keep as it goes lovely with chicken and fish.
I used to cook this lemon sole for my children when they were younger as it’s full of flavour and much healthier than fish fingers. I like to know that what I put on my children’s plates is good for them, unlike some of the quick supermarket foods. You can also coat these with bread crumbs – they loved that too.
