Dover Sole stands out due to its unparalleled taste and texture, making it the most flavoursome among the Sole family. It boasts a delicate and sweet flavour, complemented by its firm texture and small flakes.
This sought-after fish is commonly found in the coastal waters of Devon, Cornwall, and Dorset. It prefers sandy and muddy areas, where it buries itself in the seabed during the day and actively feeds at night. While Dover Sole can live up to 40 years, it is now rarely caught above 15 years of age. As a migratory species, it departs from the shoreline during winter and returns in spring.
To enhance the grilling process, Mitch loads the hot coals with branches of rosemary. As the rosemary smokes, it imparts delightful scents to the fish as it cooks.
The final touch is a mouthwatering samphire butter which is poured all over the beautifully grilled fish.
It is a magnificent way to serve a truly remarkable fish!
