Tasty Tips & Tricks - West Coast Dover Sole

West Coast Dover Sole (or Microstomus pacificus for our fellow fish nerds) cooks up quickly with sweet, delicate, and flaky fillets that deserve a place on your table.

Selected Recipes


What to Do

  1. Defrost slow and steady. Move Dover Sole to the fridge 24 hours before you plan to cook it.
  2. Season well. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any other spices included in your recipe. Pro Tip: Dover Sole is delicious coated in flour and sautéed (see our recipe video).
  3. Watch for curling. If your fish fillets are curling up in the pan, feel free to apply light pressure with a spatula.
  4. Get cooking already!   

What Not to Do

  1. Never defrost in the microwave. No matter how desperate you are. Microwaving the Sole could cost you its nice tender texture.
  2. Avoid fiddling too much. Dover Sole fillets are extremely delicate and can break if they aren't handled gently. To keep your fillets perfectly intact, try not to flip - if you do, be gentle and use a non-stick pan
