Top Review by EddieGib

I consider sole to be one of the best most versatile fish to cook, and this recipe, although nice, spoils the delicate flavour of the fish and replaces it with a parmesan eggy taste. The garlic/wine/ lemon sauce is tasty but personally, i think this lovely fish deserves a simple pan fry in butter and lemon to get the best of the fish's flavour.
