4-6 pieces per kilo. It comes clean and whole.

In the Rías Baixas, we call it “rapante”, and “meiga” a little further north. It’s a white fish that’s great for children’s diets thanks to its soft texture and gentle flavour, especially the larger pieces, which are easier to clean.

You can also request it be vacuum packed.

The megrim sole (Lepidorhombus wiffiagonis) is fished both in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. A good part of the catches come from our fleet in the Sole Bank. Its body is flat, oval and elongated, with a very large and oblique mouth. The eyes, located on the dorsal side, are large and close together, set at slightly different levels. The colour of the dorsal face varies from yellow to brown, while the ventral face is white with pink hues.

They’re easy to find in our markets all year round, although most abundant in March and April. Normally, they weigh around 200 to 500 grams per piece, although some reach over a kilo.

Megrim sole is a white fish that’s low in fat and calories and has a high level of protein compared to other lean fish. Its vitamin and mineral content include iodine, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and iron, as well as folic acid and vitamin B6, which are essential for health. A very easy fish to digest, it’s recommended for people with digestive diseases.

Its white flesh has a very traditional flavour and few bones, which is why it’s been a staple food for children for so long. Except the large sizes that are better in stews and oven bakes, the most common way to cook this fish is to fry it, either sliced or filleted.
