pan fried fish copy

Fall is coming.  I’m saying it aloud right now in an attempt to convince myself that it’s true.  We’re only two days away and right now the forecast is 100+ degree weather.  Yuck!  The upside is that it’s hot enough to justify more summer cuisine for just a little bit longer.  This light, flaky Sole, is perfect with a little salsa or lemon juice (or both) spooned over the top.  Add a little side salad and you have yourself a quick little meal.

Sole Fillets, dried with a paper towel
1/2 C. Flour
1 t. Salt
1 t. Ground Pepper
2 T. Butter

1/2 C. Fresh Salsa, Good Tomato Sauce, or 3 T Lemon Juice with Zest of one lemon

Over med-high heat in a large skillet, melt the butter until slightly browned.  Meanwhile, combine the flour, salt and pepper and coat both sides of the fish lightly with the mixture.  Place the fish in the pan and cook for about 2-3 min per side.  Once on the second side, spoon sauce or juice over the fish and cook remaining 2-3 min.  With a metal spatula, remove the fish from the pan and pour any residual sauce over the fish.  Fast and easy meal—-Enjoy!
