Sole Meuniere for Two

Sole Meuniere is a classic French dish.

It's actually the first true French dish that Julia Child ever tasted.  And I decided to make a version of it fit for two.  It's a light dish where the fish is dipped in flour, fried in butter, and then coated in a lemon butter sauce.

So tasty!

Sole Mueniere for Two


2 sole fillets (4 oz)
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 Tbs unsalted butter
1/2 tsp lemon zest
3 Tbs lemon juice


Heat butter in a 10-inch skillet until it begins to brown.

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a large plate.  Dredge sole fillets in the flour mixture on both sides and place in the hot butter and cook for 2 minutes on each side.

After the fillets have been turned to the second side, add the lemon zest and lemon juice to the pan.  Remove the fillets and stir the lemon juice and butter to make the sauce.

Pour the sauce over the fish and serve.
