I never had Dover sole before until tonight. It’s like flounder but much softer. I love it and it’s cheap!!
And did you know that sole meunière is one of the first dishes Julia Child had in Paris AND it sparked her love for French food? Ekkkk! How exciting!
[100% organic & wild]
- ¼ cup AP flour
- Salt & pepper
- 4 Dover sole fillets
- 3 TBS butter
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 TBS flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Combine flour with salt & pepper in a shallow plate and mix well. Pat sole fillets dry with paper towels and coat in the flour, shake fillets to get extra flour off and place on a plate.
Heat butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat and wait for butter to brown, then place fillets in the hot butter. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, once you are ready to flip over, add the lemon zest and lemon juice to the pan. Sprinkle cooked fillets with parsley and eat immediately.
