How to cook Broiled New Zealand Sole
- 4 whole (about 1/2 pound each) New Zealand sole or flounder, dressed
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
- 4 bay leaves
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Coleslaw (recipe follows)
- French Fried Potatoes (recipe follows)
- Preheat the broiler.
- Melt the butter in a 1-quart saucepan over low heat. Add the Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, bay leaves, pepper and cheese. Stir to mix.
- Pour half the mixture into the bottom of the broiler pan while the mixture is hot.
- Place the sole, dark skin down, in the pan. Pour the remaining mixture over the sole.
- Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat, without turning, for 8 minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the fish. When the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, it is done.
- Serve the Broiled New Zealand Sole hot with Coleslaw and French Fried Potatoes.

The Broiled New Zealand Sole recipe easy to cook and so good!
For extra convenience, use one package (16 ounces) refrigerated coleslaw mix (cabbage and carrots).
This has to be the best coleslaw ever. The flavors blend and intensify with time, so, if possible, make this the day before you plan to eat it.
