I was in the mood for fish the other night and wanted something healthy, tasty and local if possible. I came across some Lemon Sole, caught in the Long Island Sound at the Union Market. I was confused and intrigued all at the same time. Lemon Sole. Well, of course I’ve had sole before. But lemon sole? What’s the difference? Are they fed lemons? Well apparently the fish is a fraud it seems. From Wikipedia, because I know you’re all just as curious as me.
I’m super picky about fish. In fact I never even liked the stuff until I was in college. As a child I had fish sticks and flounder (usually frozen) that my mom would force down my throat. In college, in order to introduce me to sushi, he literally shoved a piece into my mouth when I wasn’t paying attention. It was pretty good, really good actually. So for a while, I only ate raw fish, still nothing cooked.
