Fillets of Sole in White Wine

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is from my Dutch cook book. It's very simple and tastes great. A quick week night meal. I would use a nice Pinot Grigio wine - use a cup for the recipe, and save the rest to serve with dinner.


  1. Salt the fillets and place them in a greased ovenproof dish.
  2. Add the wine, 3 tbsp of butter and the chopped mushrooms.
  3. Cover and bake 20 minutes in a 350 oven.
  4. Make the sauce: melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the flour and stir.
  5. Pour the juices from the baked fish into the butter/flour mixture.
  6. Stir and simmer a couple of minutes.
  7. Pour the sauce over the fish and serve.

This recipe sounded great but I followed the recipe just as written and not one person in the family liked this. In fact they said it was the worst dish I have made in recent memory, and my husband will eat just about anything. I am not sure why, perhaps it was the type of white wine we used. Perhaps you could suggest the type of wine to use in the recipe. Maybe ours didn't go well with the mushrooms. Sorry I guess this is just not our type of recipe. Perhaps we'd try it again if you suggested a type of wine.

I was amazed at how much flavor came from this simple recipe. I did use more mushrooms bc I LOVE them. I did not measure - just threw in what I had. This was so good! Like something from a very nice restaurant! thanks PanNan
