DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Have 2 heat-proof dinner plates ready.
  • Combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large shallow plate.
  • Pat the sole fillets dry with paper towels and sprinkle one side with salt.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of butter in a large (12-inch) saute pan over medium heat until it starts to brown.
  • Dredge 2 sole fillets in the seasoned flour on both sides and place them in the hot butter.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and cook for 2 minutes. Turn carefully with a metal spatula and cook for 2 minutes on the other side.
  • While the second side cooks, add 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to the pan.
  • Carefully put the fish filets on the ovenproof plates and pour the sauce over them.
  • Keep the cooked fillets warm in the oven while you repeat the process with the remaining 2 fillets.
  • When they're done, add the cooked fillets to the plates in the oven. Sprinkle with the parsley, salt, and pepper and serve immediately.
