  • 1/2 cup flour, preferably Wondra
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 gray sole fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Finely chopped zest and juice from 1 lemon, plus wedges for garnish


  1. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge fish fillets in flour mixture, coating both sides, and shake off excess.

  2. Melt butter with oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. When butter begins to foam, add fillets. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer each fillet to a serving plate.

  3. Add almonds, parsley, zest, and 2 tablespoons juice to pan. Spoon over fillets, and serve with lemon wedges.

    My husband and I don't eat seafood so I substituted chicken for the solo. We now eat this meal at least once a month. We love it so much!

    Very nice dish. The sole has a very delicate flavor and goes well with the lemon and almonds. Easy to make. Would definitely make again.
