This is the signature dish of Le Dome and a total classic. They use Dover sole, but if you can't find it at your fish market, just substitute sole, lemon sole, grey sole, or flounder. It's a very simple dish and tastes so light and perfect.
¼ Cup All-Purpose Flour
¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
4 Sole Fillets (About 4 Ounces Each)
4 Tablespoons (½ Stick) Unsalted Butter
2 Teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Minced Flat-Leaf Parsley
Combine flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge each fish fillet in the flour mixture until well coated.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the fish and brown about 3 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Transfer the fish to a platter and tent with foil. Add the remaining butter to the pan and turn up the heat to medium-high. When the butter starts to brown, about 3 minutes, add the lemon juice and parsley. Pour the butter over the fish and serve immediately.
