Poached Sole Fish

01/02/2012

 
I have been eating fried during the holidays so I thought having poached fish is just about right for lunch. This is a simple yet flavorful recipe for sole fillet.

I love that it has a pretty mild taste that you can put either mustard on top of it or just drizzle with lemon juices and salt. You can also use Pantai Sweet Chili Sauce if you want a little bit of Thai taste. When I cooked this for my friend one time she just drizzled the fish with Truffle oil, and told me that it still tasted great! Healthy doesn't have to be boring! Try this recipe today!

3.
 Turn the fish over to make sure you cook the other side too since the fish will float.

Once the fish is cooked, remove carefully from the pan and place on a serving plate including the bay leaves, spring onions and garlic on the side. Drain the skillet, and heat the olive oil.
