• Dover sole (whole fish)

    £19.99Price

    Dover sole (or king of the soles) is a long, slipper-shaped flatfish - delicate and flavourful with a crisp white flesh, and an almost sweet taste.

     

    These sole weigh around 450-600g* and are supplied as whole fish to cook on the bone, or fillet at home.

     

    Our fish is a world away from what you will find in the supermarket:

     

    Fresh means fresh

    We deliver high-quality fresh fish to your door either the day it's caught (for locally-landed Sussex fish) or within 1-2 days if it's from elsewhere in the UK. Unlike a lot of supermarket fish, ours has never been previously frozen, so you're guaranteed that fresh means fresh.

     

    Seasonal & UK-sourced

    We select fresh fish in season from within the UK - as much as possible comes from our local Sussex waters. This means our fish has fewer food miles than non-UK fish so it reaches you fresher, has a lower environmental impact and isn't frozen on its journey to you.

     

    Plastic-free sustainable packaging

    We use plant-based, compostable packaging for our fresh fish paper wrapping, labels and bags. You can freeze your fresh fish in the paper it arrives in and, when you have finished with it, add it to your food waste bin, compost bin or garden compost and it will break down into organic material in a matter of weeks.

     

    Free delivery

    We deliver free every Friday and Saturday - we have a range of pre-bookable time-slots for your postcode.

    • Provenance

      Our Dover sole are mostly from our local Sussex waters, but sometimes from elsewhere in the UK, depending on availability.

       

      The Sussex day-boats land their catch within hours of capture, to ensure the fish is of the highest quality. When these fish are temporarily unavailable from the local sea area, we will only source them from sustainable stocks within the UK.

    • How should I store my fish?

      Fresh fish is best enjoyed when eaten straight away, or within 2 days. Store in your fridge and make sure that all fish is in covered containers.

       

      Alternatively, to freeze your fish, place it straight in the freezer upon delivery - remember that oily fish does not freeze as well as white fish, so be sure to consume within 2 months. Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
