Oma's Quick Sole Recipes

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Need something quick? Try these sole recipes. They're sure to please even the finickiest eaters. These easy fish recipes using sole show three different ways to make this delicious fish.

Perhaps you'd like a pan fried fish recipe, or one that's steamed, or one that's rolled and served on a bed of mushrooms.

For these recipes you can use either fresh sole or frozen fillets. If frozen, thaw and wipe dry with paper towels before proceeding with the recipe.

If you're a sole lover, you'll be interested to note that the literal translation of the German "Seezunge" is "sea tongue" -- surely an interesting visual representation of this unusual fish.
