Maybe it’s the constant threat of rain snatching the very idea of summer from our fingertips before we’ve had a chance to enjoy it, but, when it comes to barbecue season, us Brits don’t do things by halves. If, like me, you’ve got a barbecue booked every weekend from now until September, avoid meat-heavy mid-week meals and opt for lighter dishes – like these quick and easy whole Dover sole fillets. Enjoy them grilled with salt and pepper, or try making an easy restaurant staple: sole meunière. Lightly dust the fillets in flour before frying in a little oil for a few minutes on each side. Melt butter in a pan until it turns golden brown and throw in lemon juice and parsley, pouring over the fish to serve.
