Great fish dish with an unusual topping. The shrimp are very nice in that topping. An easy recipe and very nice for a dinner party.

A great recipe! I used 8 thin sole fillets, omitted the white wine and drained the liquid after baking the fillets.

I have made this several times and everyone says it taste like something from a nice resturant. Most want the recipe, but some just ask me to make it again and be sure to invite them. Thanks Geema.
