PACIFIC DOVER SOLE

PACIFIC DOVER SOLE

The excellent quality of the flesh and its good keeping qualities in frozen storage have made Dover Sole one of the more important fishes in this category on the Pacific Coast. It lives from Northern Baja California to the Bering Sea. The flesh of the Dover Sole ranges in color from cream to white and has a delicate texture. Fillets that are excessively milky or gelatinous are commonly called "Deep Water Dover" even though they may not have been caught in deep water. Above this level there is a range of fillet textures that are perfectly acceptable. If you think you have a problem with the texture of your fillets, talk to your distributor.
