Yield:
4 servings

Ingredients
  • 4 (4-ounce) sole fillets
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons fines herbes (equal parts chopped chives, chervil, parsley, and tarragon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Directions

Combine flour, 1 tablespoon fines herbes, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Season fish with salt and pepper and dredge in flour to coat, shaking off excess. In a large non-stick skillet heat 1 tablespoon butter over moderately high heat until foam subsides and cook fish 3 minutes each side, or until just cooked through.

Reduce heat to moderately low. Cut remaining butter into pieces and add to skillet. Simmer butter until golden brown with a nutty aroma, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and immediately add lemon juice, salt, remaining herbs and pepper to taste, swirling skillet to incorporate (butter will foam.) Serve sole filets with butter.
