Oven-Baked Witch Sole

Preparation time: 5 Cooking time: 20 Serves: 2


What to do with a fish you've never heard of before!


  • 1 Witch Sole (no, I’d never heard of one before either)
  • slug of olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt + pepper


Reheat oven to 180; clean the fish and pat dry; place on a baking tray, squeeze over half a lemon, then rub with olive oil. Scatter with coarsely ground black pepper and flakes of sea salt; bake in the over for 20 mins. Serve with braised chicory, salad and new potatoes. Now, if only I wasn’t on a diet and could have a nive half bottle of decent dry white with it…..
