Roasted Lemon Sole with Butter Bean Mash

Roasted Lemon Sole with Butter Bean Mash

We all enjoy the ‘big five’ aka the popular fish.. cod, tuna, haddock, salmon and prawns, but there are lots of other species available that taste just as good!


Having posted recipes for Tuna Frittatas, Salmon Fish Cakes, Crushed Ryvita & Greek Yoghurt Salmon, Salmon Pate and Prawn Tagliatelle, I thought it was time to go a little ‘exotic’ by using a fish that I’ve never cooked with before.. lemon sole!


I want to say a big thank you to Sainsbury’s who challenged me to #SwitchTheFish with their Fish With Thought campaign, and I couldn’t wait to share this super easy and delicious recipe with you.. delicately flavoured lemon sole cooked perfectly with cherry tomatoes and olives and served with a creamy mash.


Fish is a great source of protein and lemon sole is relatively low in both fat and calories. We should all eat more fish (at least 2 portions a week, one of which is oily e.g. salmon/mackerel), as a part of the heart healthy ‘Mediterranean diet’ and this recipe makes it easy.. it counts towards 2 of your 5 a day too!



*I asked the fishmonger to remove the heads from my fish!





*NB this fish contains bones so you will have to debone it first! Any large pan will do to make this dish.




UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who sends me pictures of my recipes on Twitter & Facebook – here are a selection!!
