Lemon Baked Dover Sole

Lemon Baked Dover Sole

A very simple and healthy way to prepare the prized Dover sole that highlights its mild, buttery sweet flavor.















13 ounces sole fillets
3 1/4 ounces each fillet
2 teaspoons butter
or non-fat margarine, melted - olive oil works too
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons parsley leaves
fresh, chopped
teaspoon black pepper
teaspoon paprika
to taste


Rinse fillets thoroughly in cold water; pat dry with paper towels, season each side lightly with salt and set aside.

Combine melted butter (or olive oil) and lemon juice in a small bowl. Combine flour, chopped parsley and pepper in a shallow container.

Dip fillets in butter/lemon juice mixture and dredge in flour mixture.

Transfer fillets to a nonstick baking sheet, and drizzle any remaining butter/lemon mixture over fish. Sprinkle fillets with paprika.

Bake at 375℉ (190℃). for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish is golden brown and flakes easily when tested with a fork.


If a crisper texture is desired, broil baked fillets 4 inches from heat for 1 minute. Garnish each fillet with a lemon wedge and fresh parsley sprigs, if desired.

Delicate flaky sole with butter and lemon. Hard to go wrong with this combination. Add some tartar sauce and a salad and it turns into a light weeknight meal.

I made this recipe several times, it works very well for me, maybe you made some mistakes on your steps, and it was tasty.

Just tried this after reading some of the negative comments. Not sure what their problem is, it turned out as expected for me, nice gentle lemon butter flavor to the fish. Clean fresh taste certainly not awful, please...

Maybe I did something wrong, tasted like mush!!

Maybe the cooking time was too long?

Mush. ? Cooking time was way too long. Sole is a very quick fish to prepare.

Well, after reading some of these negative comments, I think the culprit might be that you didn't dry the fish enough... since you said it came out mush!?!... On the positive side, I've made sole like this and it is very light and great for you! Have a Great Day!.
