The sustainability of fish can vary significantly depending on how and where it has been caught or farmed. Many single species are caught or farmed in a variety of ways and this range shows that, within a species, some sources may be more sustainable than others.
We aim to use the 1-5 traffic light system developed by the Marine Conservation Society to help you choose the most environmentally sustainable UK fish. 'Best choices' are rated 1 and 2 (green), 'Fish to Avoid' are rated 5 (red). Ratings 3 and 4 mean 'Think' (yellow and amber), as there are better rated alternatives.
Our Dover sole comes skinned on the bone, ready for you to pan-fry or grill at home - cooking on the bone is recommended for the best flavour and, once cooked, the flesh falls easily from the bone.
Available in 3 different sizes:
Small: to serve 1 person (approximately 450g-550g whole fish weight) Medium: to serve 2 people (approximately 550g-700g whole fish weight) Large: to serve 3-4 people (approximately 800g-900g whole fish weight)
When we deliver your fresh fish, it should go straight into the fridge. It's best enjoyed the day of delivery or within 2 days. Each pack is labelled with a 'Use By' date 2 days after the date your fish was packed. The paper in which your fish is wrapped is compostable, so it can go in your food waste bin or composter.
If you're planning to eat your fish 2+ days after delivery, freezing is recommended to maintain quality and freshness. Ideally freeze your fish as soon as possible on delivery day, keeping it in the paper packaging so that you retain the date label - it's best within 2 months of delivery. Defrost thoroughly before use and eat on the same day. Do not re-freeze.
