Is it sustainable?
Some stocks of Dover sole are thought to be over-fished, but the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) has certified a Dover sole fishery in Hastings on the South Coast. You can identify MSC-certified products by a white tick on a blue background – if you see this logo you can buy with confidence
How to cook it?
Classically Dover sole is grilled or pan-fried, but the easiest way of cooking it is to roast with a splash of wine. This keeps the flesh wonderfully moist, and the pan juices make a great base for an accompanying sauce.
