"This is a very simple and delicious recipe for sole. I make this when time if of the essence. Under 10 minutes for the thickness of sole that I can get. Found this on Taste of Home...but have added the lemon juice to deglaze the pan and switched up the fat."

We enjoyed the sole cooked this way which I think will also work for other fish. I used dried dill weed, so skipped adding more dill at the end, but otherwise made as directed. Served with baby potatoes and salad. Thanks for sharing!

Hey this was pretty good. I don't have a lot of experience cooking fish at home, so I was glad that this is a forgiving recipe. It was good with the sauce. We had it with mashed potatoes. Sole is expensive or I'd make this a lot!
