Baked Dover Sole with Orange Dressing Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 4 Dover Sole fillets (about 6 ounces each), skinned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound baby spinach
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 5 ounces olive oil
  • 1 1/4 freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 4 seeds from a cardamom pod
  • 1/2 vanilla pod, split, seeds scraped out and discarded
How to cook Baked Dover Sole with Orange Dressing:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Strain the orange juice into a pan, add the garlic and cardamom, bring to the boil, then simmer for 5-8 minutes until slightly reduced. Reduce the heat to low, and whisk in the olive oil in a thin stream. Keep whisking for 2-3 minutes over a low heat until emulsified. Add the vanilla pod, remove from the heat and leave to infuse while you prepare the dover sole.
  • Put a baking dish in the oven to preheat. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When hot, add the dover sole fillets, skin side up (you might need to do this in batches). Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until colored, then transfer to the baking dish, skin side down. Season. Rewhisk the dressing if necessary, then strain it. Drizzle about 3/4 of it over the sole fillets, then place in the oven for 2 minutes.
  • Put the spinach in a pan with 1-2 tablespoons water. Bring to the boil and cook until just wilted. Drain. Arrange the spinach on 4 warmed plates and drizzle with a little lemon juice.
  • Lay a pan fried sole fillet on each pile of spinach, drizzle with the pan juices and remaining dressing and serve.
