This was terrific. I used tilapia and substituted sauvignon blanc for marsala because I had them on hand. I used a light sprinkle of garlic powder instead of the garlic because I wasn't looking for much garlic flavor in my francese sauce. Next time I will make a slurry of the cornstarch - as I usually do - I wasn't thinking and added it straight to the pan and ended up with clumps that had to be strained.

This variation had a little too much breading for my taste, the fish flavor was lost. Also the sauce ingredients should be pre- mixed together before adding them to the hot pan or you get a lumpy mess.

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.
