Sole With Lemon and Capers - Bonnie Stern

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Diana 2

We had this for supper tonight, and I do believe this is the only way I'm going to prepare my fish from now on. I'm not even sure I can describe it any other way but to say "Out Of This World". This is so simple, it's hard to believe it delivers such flavour. I received this recipe in a Bonnie Stern newsletter. I don't think I've ever been disappointed in any recipe of hers I've tried. I hope you will agree. The salad dressing in the photo is from Loaded Salad With Yogurt Dressing. In preparing this recipe, I opted to use a mixture of olive oil and Parsley Butter for frying.

This fish recipe is delicious! I generally try not to bread and fry my fish, but this recipe didn't sound too heavy, so I tried it. So glad I did. I really enjoyed the capers in this. This is wonderful, and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC 2011.
