Salmon/Sole with lemon butter sauce


½ pound sole or salmon

All-purpose flour

Salt and freshly ground pepper

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

¼ cup dry white wine

Juice from 1 lemon

1 teaspoon minced parsley




Rinse the Sole, blot it dry, and dust it lightly on both sides with flour just before cooking it. Season with salt and pepper.

Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet large enough to hold the sole. When the butter is foaming, lower the sole into the skillet and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes.

Flip the sole gently to avoid breaking it, using a fish spatula. This is a delicate procedure; don't rush it, or you will find yourself with a sole that breaks in half. Cook on the other side for 2 minutes, or until golden.

De-glaze with the white wine and lemon juice and cook 5 more minutes, or until the liquid reduces by half and the sole is cooked. Turn gently to coat with the sauce, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
