Sole Belle Meuniere

by Michelle on January 24, 2009


OH MY…this was just a wonderful dinner. Once again Whisk Wednesdays hit the spot. I do love any fish but rarely make it at home. Fish always seemed to me to be too much trouble to cook but really fish is no trouble at all.

Finding the correct variety of fish for a recipe is a huge problem in my area. We have no fish market to speak of, so I am a victim of what’s available at the moment and what looks fresh. I did find some sole, but it did not look good to me so opted for some wonderful Orange Roughy fillets.

I served the fish with a side of mixed white and wild rice laced with pinenuts and EVOO and a small, tossed salad with Green Goddess Dressing. It was just yummy!
