From San Francisco Chronicle & SFGate.com. "Beurre Blanc is an elegant sauce for fish & adding the sweet juice of Meyer lemons makes a fine finish for Petrale sole, onf our prized local fish & one of my personal favorites. However, other delicate fish could be treated to the sauce as well or even firm fleshed fish like halibut."

- finely ground sea salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 lbs petrale sole fillets
- 8 tablespoons butter, cut into 1 tablespoon pieces
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed meyer lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon grated meyer lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
