New This Month

We used lemon sole, a flaky, mild-tasting white fish. At the market, look for flat fish such as sole or flounder; Pacific-caught are the most sustainable. Tilapia works well, too. Serve it with steamed new potatoes and sauteed spinach.

Cook's Notes

This method showcases the fish's delicate texture. You can use the pan drippings to create a quick sauce.
