Wild Dover Sole – Whole or Fillet

Starting at $80.00 ($40.00 / lb)

Product Description

Wild caught in Portugal by day-boat fisherman; you will not find fresher wild Dover Sole in the United States! Day boats spend only one day at sea before returning with their catch. Handling the fish with care, our partners in Portugal ship the Sole to us ocean-fresh.  

The premium quality of our Sole has helped make them a best-seller here at Browne, both to professional Chefs and home cooks alike.

Dover sole has tender, moist flesh that shines in the kitchen. Prepare this fish by:

  • Steaming
  • Poaching with wine and topped with sauce
  • A la Meuniere
  • Grilling with lemon wedges

Because of the thin, delicate fillets, Dover Sole is best suited to the above methods rather than dry heat like baking or boiling; this will help avoid overcooking. A classic way to serve Sole is whole and fillet at the table.

Available as two whole one pound fish. Scaled and gutted.


Four Skin-on Fillets approximately 1 pound total
