Tonight is Tisha B’Av, a fast day. Admittedly it is a day that I struggle with, but not my husband Norm. He will be home any minute and will want to eat and run off to shul. That meant preparing a light and easy meal.
Fish is something that I enjoy on occasion but certainly never have a craving for. I just can’t get excited over salmon the way I can over a beautiful thick steak or a perfectly prepared lamb chop. There is one fish dish that I really enjoy, sautéed fillet of sole. All you need is fresh fish from a reliable fish market, good quality butter and lemon.
For those of you observing, I wish you an easy fast.
Sautéed Fillet of Sole
1 lb. fillet of sole
1/2 cup flour seasoned well with salt and pepper
3 Tbsp butter
Dredge sole in seasoned flour and shake to remove excess.
Melt butter in large sauté pan over medium heat. When butter sizzles, add sole and cook about 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side. Put on platter and drizzle with fresh squeezed lemon.
