Rinse the lemon sole fillets in cold water and pat dry with kitchen towel, then dust in the seasoned flour.

Heat a large heavy base frying pan until hot and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Pat off excess flour from fish and place sole fillets into hot frying pan.

Cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Turn over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

Remove from the frying pan, place in a large serving dish and keep warm. Add butter to frying pan and when it turns nut brown in colour, add the lemon juice, capers, parsley, chives, tomatoes and shrimps (also add relish if using) and warm through.

Season to taste and pour over the lemon sole fillets.


Heat a large frying pan or wok, add oil and butter. When butter starts to foam add garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add kale and cabbage, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of water if pan is looking too dry.

Add spinach, cook for a further 2 minutes.
