Baked Sole with Asparagus

Look for relatively thick, large flatfish fillets for this elegant dish. Purchase 2 of them totaling 1 1/2 lb., and then cut them in half lengthwise to make 4 servings. Or, buy 8 small fillets totaling the same weight, and overlap pairs of fillets to make single thicker portions.

Good flavors; cooking times not so good
June 20, 2016
Hubbs grocery shopped and instead of getting 6 cod loins, he came back with 12 very thin sole fillets. I gave this a try. The sauce was wonderfully lemony but I thought it was missing something. I thought a bit of cayenne would be good but didn't have any. I found dry mustard, added 1 tsp and it hit the mark. The fish wasn't done after 8 minutes so I set it for another 5 and it was perfect--probably due to the larger quantity. Sadly, the asparagus was quite tough and nearly raw. I ended up removing the fish and setting it aside to keep warm. There was a lot of liquid in the dish from the fish and asparagus so I poured it out and put the asparagus back in for 8 minutes. It came out perfectly then, tender but with a crisp bite. Overall, I'm happy with the recipe as a good all-around idea--we just needed to tweak a few things to make it perfect.
Pros: Healthy, Easy, Quick, Will Make Again, Adaptable

Simple and Delicious

Seems overly simple but the lemon zest makes a huge impact on taste. Try it.

Very elegant & light
April 11, 2012
This is really a beautiful recipe. Sole is a very delicate fish and placing 2 thin fillets on top of oneanother to make a thicker one is a very clever idea. The one dish presentation with the fillets on top of the asparagus is simply wonderful! And the sauce is simple to prepare and very delicious.
This is a very elegant dish, that is healthy, easy to prepare and an impressive presentation from oven to table.
Pros: Quick, Healthy, Impressive
