Dover Sole


  • 2 Dover sole fillets (6-8 ounces each)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Season the Dover sole fillets with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Dredge the fillets in flour, shaking off any excess.
  4. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the butter has melted and the pan is hot, add the Dover sole fillets to the skillet and cook until golden brown on one side, about 3-4 minutes.
  6. Flip the fillets over and add the lemon slices to the skillet. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Pour in the white wine and broth and bring to a simmer.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 6-8 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  9. Remove the skillet from the oven and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  10. Serve the Dover sole hot, with the lemon slices and pan juices spooned over the top.

Enjoy your delicious Dover Sole!
