Pan Sauteed Sole/Flounder Parmesan

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Oolala

From A Guide to Modern American Cooking. It is called Grilled Sole Parmesan there but I changed the name to reflect the cooking style. This is not grilled! I am putting here for future use. ***For the reviewer who wanted advice on how to prevent fish from sticking: try a Teflon or other non-stick pan and use plastic spatulas to move the fish around gently to avoid breaking the fish. Hope this helps.

This recipe caught my eye since it is very similar to one I use frequently. To the reviewer with the question, Fish can be contrary. What I have learned from cooking fish at least twice a week with a seafood loving husband is to use a non-stick pan, don't have your heat too high, and don't try to turn too quickly. Your change in oil choice should have made no difference. When the fish is ready to release from the pan, it will let you can push it and it will move. Until that happens, do NOT try to lift it with a spatula. Can you tell I learned this the hard way?
