DOVER SOLE PICCATTA

DOVER SOLE PICCATTA
DINNER AT HOME

I cannot believe the price of fresh fish at Whole Foods Market in Hawaii.  Prices on this day ranged from $12.99 to $30 per pound.  With Mahi Mahi at $18 per pound I looked for an alternative and found Dover Sole for just under $10 per pound.  I don't have much experience with Dover Sole so I used a pretty basic recipe to make Dover Sole Piccatta.  The dish came out pretty good but my Daughter said it was too "lemony".  I agreed.  Should have tasted the sauce before squeezing the second half of the lemon in the sauce.  Dover Sole is a very light fish with mild flavor.  The sauce kicked up the flavor and was very easy to make.

PICKED UP A POUND OF DOVER SOLE FOR UNDER $10
BUTTER, SHALLOTS, LEMON, SHALLOTS, CAPERS AND GARLIC
FLOUR SEASONED WITH SALT AND FRESHLY CRACKED PEPPER
LIGHTLY DUSTED THE DOVER SOLE IN FLOUR
YOU CAN FRY THE FISH IN OLIVE OIL OR BUTTER.   I WENT FOR THE BUTTER.
COOKED FOR ABOUT TWO MINUTES ON BOTH SIDES AND THEN PLACED THE FISH ON A HEATED PLATE IN 200 DEGREE OVEN WHILE I FINISHED THE SAUCE
DEGLAZED THE PAN WITH A 1/2 CUP OF WHITE WINE AND REDUCED
ADDED SHALLOTS AND GARLIC
ADDED BUTTER AND LET THE SAUCE THICKEN
SAUCE THICKENED NICELY ON LOW HEAT
ADDED CAPERS AND FRESH PARSLEY
