The sole is a flat saltwater fish with a thick, oval body. The lean flesh is fine, white, and delicate to mild in flavor. Authentic sole is imported to the United States from Europe and often is referred to on menus in fancy restaurants as imported Dover sole.
Pacific Sole with Oranges & Pecans
Not so long ago, Dover sole meant an overcooked fillet swimming in butter, dotted with tasteless dried herbs and soaked in too much lemon juice. But sole deserves a comeback: it can become a satisfying, sophisticated, one-skillet dinner with very little effort. The recipe can easily be doubled.
Fine, firm texture, and delicate flavor make sole or flounder a favorite among gourmet cooks. Filled with an herb-seasoned stuffing mix, spinach, and feta cheese, and served with fresh lemon juice, this fish recipe is a low-fat source of protein.
For a quicker fish recipe, cover the dish of rolled fish with vented plastic wrap and microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating the dish a half turn mid-way through cooking. The rich, savory cream cheese filling is the perfect complement to lean sole in this fish dinner ...
Fish and Seafood: Know Your Label Lingo
Reports found that many fish are mislabeled. For example, all of the red snapper tested was not, in fact, red snapper. Dover sole , yellowtail tuna, white tuna, and wild salmon were also often mislabeled. (Ahi tuna, bluefin tuna, sea bass, and Coho salmon were
Slow Cooker Chicken Puttanesca
SPRING BREAK is over. It was pretty anticlimactic and I'm still trying to figure out where I went wrong. We were really looking forward to it, and had been quite excited the days and weeks leading up to this last one. The kids and I had elaborate plans of staying in our jammies all day and playing board games and gardening and writing. Instead we watched too much tv and argued. But! I'm now caught up on all of Mad Men and watched the entire first season of the remake of Dallas. I liked it when the boys took their shirts off.... anyway. I did cook, and I think you're going to like this one. The Ingredients. serves 4 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped 1 tablespoon dried oregano (2 tablespoons fresh, finely diced) 1/2 teaspoon dried red chile flakes 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 cup pitted kalamata olives (no juice) 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced (to add at the very end; not pictured) cooked pasta for serving (I used gluten free angel hair) The Directions. Use a 4-quart slow cooker for best results. If you only have a 6-quart, use more chicken, or don't cook it quite as long (I'd check after 4 hours on low, 3 hours on high). Plop the chicken into the bottom of your slow cooker and add all of the other ingredients, except for the cheese. Cover, and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for about 4 hours If you'd like, you can cook longer, but the chicken will probably fall apart and begin to shred. That's okay with me --- but if it's not with you, consider yourself forewarned! Before serving, top with sliced fresh mozzarella cheese, and cook on high for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve over hot buttered pasta with a green salad. The Verdict. This is a fancy-pants chicken recipe that is super easy yet it tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen. There is very little chopping required (only from garlic; you could always use jarred if you prefer) and you can throw it all in the pot before you even put on your contacts and drain the coffee. I had Chicken Puttanesca last summer at an Italian restaurant and knew I needed to figure out how to make it at home. I'm not, however, going to tell you what Puttanesca means because that's why they invented Google and this is a family-friendly website. :-) other great Italian Slow Cooker Food: Super Simple Lasagna Italian Rice Eggplant "Parmesan" Italian Minestrone Not Your Mother's Meatballs Fillet of Sole with Pesto Pesto Minestrone we've got giveaways up and running again on the giveaway page.

French food is that it’s complicated. While there are certainly dishes in the French repertoire that take a lot of work , Sole Meunière is not one of them. Taking a whole fifteen minutes from start to finish, it makes for a perfect weeknight meal. Another
SVS: Sole Meunière
The idea here was simple, apply a modern French technique to a French classic. I lightly salted two cleaned flatfish and bagged them along with slices of lemon and sprigs of parsley. They went into the Sous Vide Supreme for half an hour at 60 degrees C. Because the fish is usually floured and pan
