Flavour Profile

Salties Lemon Sole has delicate and sweet white flesh, but unlike the name, it does not taste like a lemon. It is considered to be among the tastier fish species and it's often sought after by restaurants. It has a classic tender fine flake that comes apart easily when cooked. Lemon sole is a complicated fish, first it is not a sole, it’s a Flounder, and second, it is completely different than the Pacific Lemon Sole.
