About this recipe: Few classy meals could be quicker and simpler. Dover sole is a real treat and its superb taste can be fully appreciated when it is cooked this way. New potatoes with fresh mint and baby leaf spinach complement this most elegant of fish dishes. Dover sole are usually sold skinned and cleaned.
Other, less expensive flat fish such as lemon sole, Torbay sole or small whole plaice are also delicious grilled with lemon butter. Allow 4–5 minutes cooking each side. Instead of spinach, serve with broccoli florets steamed for 2–3 minutes or until barely tender.
Sole is a useful source of vitamin B12, which plays a critical role in the production of DNA and RNA, the genetic material in cells. * New potatoes cooked in their skins have one-third more fibre than peeled potatoes, and the nutrients found just under the skin are preserved.
