Category: Fish, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Butter or Margarine
  • 2 tb Shallots or Green Onions;
  • -chopped
  • 1 lb Mushrooms; chopped
  • 3 lb Sole Filets
  • 1 1/2 c Dry White Wine
  • 1 tb Lemon Juice
  • 2 tb Parsley; chopped
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts White Pepper
  • 1 1/2 tb Flour
  • 1 c Heavy Cream


Grease a 12" skillet with 2 tb butter or margarine; sprinkle with shallots
or green onions; add mushrooms. Fold filets in half or thirds; place in
pan. Add wine and water to just cover filets. Add lemon juice, parsley,
salt and pepper. Cover with a circle of wax paper with a small hole cut in
the center. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes. Remove filets
to a serving plate; keep warm.

Blend flour and 1 tb butter or margarine (beurre manie.) Reduce liquid in
skillet by half. Add beurre manie, a small amount at a time, stirring until
sauce is smooth. Add cream; bring to a boil; correct seasoning. Remove from
heat. Add remaining butter or margarine a little at a time, rotating
skillet to effect a gradual melting. Pour over filets. Glaze quickly under
the broiler or in a 425øF oven. (The purpose of the glazing is to improve
the appearance of the dish, and could be omitted without changing the taste
in any way.)
