Fried Petrale Sole with Lemon Butter Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 Petrale sole fillets, about 6 ounce each
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon capers (optional)
  • Lemon wedges for garnish
How to cook Fried Petrale Sole with Lemon Butter Sauce:
  • Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Season both sides of the fish with salt and a little finely ground black pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium high heat. Add the olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan. When oil is slightly smoking, add the fish to the pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side, until fish is brown and crispy. Turn the fish over with a spatula and cook another 2 minutes on the other side. Pour lemon juice over the fish and remove from pan. Set aside.
  • Add butter and capers to hot pan. Swirl butter until melted, scraping any bits off the bottom of the pan. Without overheating the butter, let the butter develop a light brown coloring to it. Remove from heat and spoon butter sauce and capers over the fish and serve immediately with lemon wedges
