Filet of Sole With Leek Sauce
- Ready In:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 leeks, split lengthwise, washed well, and sliced thin
- 1⁄3 cup dry white wine
- 2 sole fillets (about 3/4 pound total)
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- fresh lemon juice
- minced fresh parsley leaves (to garnish)
- In a microwave-safe glass casserole microwave the butter at high power (100%) for 1 minute, or until it is melted.
- Stir in the leeks and salt to taste and microwave the mixture, covered with the lid, at high power (100%) for 10 minutes, or until the leek is tender.
- Transfer the leek mixture to a saucepan and add the wine. Season the sole with salt and pepper and fold the fillets, skinned sides in, into thirds.
- Arrange the fillets in the casserole and microwave them, covered with lid, at high power (100%) for 3 minutes, or until they just flake.
- While the fish is cooking, boil the leek mixture until almost all the liquid is evaporated. Transfer the fish with a slotted spatula to heated plates and keep it warm, covered with foil.
- Add the fish liquid remaining in the casserole to the leek mixture and boil the mixture until the liquid is reduced by half.
- Add the cream and boil the mixture, stirring, until the sauce is thickened slightly.
- Season the sauce with the lemon juice and salt and pepper, spoon it around the fish, and garnish each serving with the parsley.

<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
