Quick and easy way to make fish, and yet it looks and tastes like it's taken ages! Made it for a dinner party, so prepared it up to step 4, and then instead of baking it put it in the fridge until half an hour before i wanted to serve dinner.Just realised i forgot to add the cream at the end, but it turned out fine anyway and everyone enjoyed it. Thank you!
This turned out wonderful! I had never had Sole before and the recipe was very easy to put together. I followed the recipe using fresh herbs and I thought I had green onions but didn’t, so I used a shallot and it worked very well. I used fresh Cornish Lemon Sole. It was mild, tender and moist, but there were so many tiny bones; even when I very gently would lift the flesh from them I still would get a few with every forkful. That part was a bit of a put off for me. It was a very thin fish and being a novice I’m not sure how I would go about de-boning it without removing all the good stuff. I served it over lightly steamed fresh spinach which went fantastic with the sauce. I will surely make this recipe again because the sauce was so easy, light and delicious, but with a less bony fish next time.
