Sauteed Dover Sole

Dover sole is a subspecies of sole found in the North Atlantic. It is a white fish with firm, flavorful meat. Cooks can roast, poach, grill or saute the fish. Sauteed Dover sole is a quick and easy way to prepare the fish.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Ready in: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Dover sole fish, skinned and cleaned
  • 1 cup flour
  • Salt, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper or other seasoning spices
  • 1 1/2 ounces olive oil or sunflower oil
  • Butter or lemon juice (optional)

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2: Mix the salt, black pepper and spices into the flour. Coat the sole with the flour mixture.

Step 3: Heat the olive oil or sunflower oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the fish to the pan and cook each side until it is golden brown.

Step 4: Cooks who want to use butter or lemon juice to flavor the sole can pat the fish with butter or sprinkle it with lemon juice before removing the fish from the pan.

Step 5: Transfer the fish to an ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 4 minutes.

Sauteed sole pairs well with sauces such as white wine sauce, tomato compote or butter sauce.
