    This was good. Handling the fish was the issue... Get the filets flat, hit them with salt & pepper, dust with flour and then let them be for 10 min. In your Non-stick pan, add some canola oil (or peanut or soy and then some butter. The butter will begin to foam, then add your fish. Once the fish is in the pan give it a good shake to keep it moving. This fish is very delicate and you got to be careful on the flip or you'll have scrambled fish. I put some oil on your spatula, slide it under the fish and do the flip. My filets were pretty thin. I did two min on the first side and 90 secs on the next.
    I use filets. After browning, I let them briefly heat in the oven while making the sauce. Oil needs to be hot. Quick and easy
    Poor recipe... 
    I followed it to the letter with two whole dover soles and they were not close to being cooked through... 
    I assure you I know how to cook, by the way. 
    Good luck... 
    Exelent and very easy to make also you can add your own flavor! Thank you!!
    It looks like a couple people here don't know how to cook. How could someone screw this up? The receipe is simple and easy. The flavor is good. Yes, a little crispy is better than not. I added chopped capers to the sauce. A recipe that would work for any delicate white fish.

    I threw mine out. So gross.
    The title sums it up for this one.
    Make sure the heat is high enough to crispy fry the fish.
    This is a good quick meal for entertaining. A salad and rice pilaf round out this dish nicely. It's light enough you can serve a richer dessert with this!
