En papillote baked farmed sole with clams served with Isle of Wight heritage tomatoes, and a warm rapeseed, white wine and lemon dressing. 

Sole is one of the most versatile fish for cooking. These farmed fish offer greater stability of price and more consistent availability than their wild counterparts. These fish taste delicious – whether fried, baked, sautéed or poached. 

The name sole is widely used for a variety of flat fish, and there are a number of species that are referred to as sole. However, only species of the genus solea are considered to be “true sole”.
