Chef's Table

Each week, a chef shares a favourite recipe. This week, Sean Smith from the Cliff Townhouse on St Stephen's Green in Dublin offers a classic take on black sole.

Grilled black sole with lemon, caper and parsley.

Black sole, or Dover sole as it is more commonly known, is an extremely tasty fish that is a wonderful treat, especially when served simply with ingredients that let its flavour shine through.

If you can't get it, or if you need a more economical alternative, try substituting plaice, slip sole or lemon sole.

One large skinless black sole (500 to 600g)
