Create a tasty yet healthy dinner that anyone can enjoy by trading in your turf for a little bit of surf. Lemon sole is a common flatfish of the Plaice family but, contrary to the name, these fish are a species of flounder. Our lemon sole flounder fillets are tender, with fine-flaked white flesh one might only expect from a smaller, traditional sole fish.
