A large sole for at least 4 people or better still get 4 small soles , one for each person

A hint from Zia Mirella โ€“ you can use frozen sole โ€“ it is excellent and very fresh as  the fish are frozen on the fishing boat as soon as they are caught.

A small bunch of parsley

A small glass of dry white wine

The juice of one lemon

A little white flour 

A large pat of butter

A dash of salt and pepper


Lightly flour the whole fish.

Melt the butter in a large non stick frying pan.

Gently cook the sole on a medium heat on both sides for a few minutes.

Add the white wine and the lemon juice and continue cooking until the liquid 

has nearly evaporated .This should take another 5-6 minutes.

Add the chopped parsley and a dash of salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with boiled baby potatoes with a little butter and some of the chopped parsley.

This is a dish you have to make at the last minute but it is simple and quick .
