    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 lbs sole (4 1-pound fish) or 4 lbs flounder, cleaned and scaled (4 1-pound fish)
    • 4 cups fish stock or 4 cups clam juice
    • 4 fresh fennel, sprigs
    • olive oil, for frying (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1/4 cup capers, drained
    • salt and pepper, to taste (freshly ground is best)

    Beurre Blanc

    • 6 shallots, peeled and minced
    • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc are all good choices)
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream or 1/2 cup whipping cream
    • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
