Fillets of turbot or halibut are good alternatives to sole. I don’t recommend flounder or cod fillets; they’re too delicate.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent. I followed the recipe exactly. I was happy to get the dramatic bubbles when I poured the brown butter over the fish. Thank you for giving me a delicious way to serve an inexpensive fish.
we made this one night when we were in a hurry. We made it with olive oil instead of clarified butter for time sake. Did not have lemons so we put lemon pepper in the flour. It was amazing! So tasty even though we used inferior ingredients. The brown butter was delicious. Will definitely make this again.
This recipe is fast enough for a work night. I used fresh sole.
I have been making this since the magazine came out in 2001. It is our favorite way to prepare fish. We don't care for sole, so always use whatever we have on hand, usually tilapia, swai, and we even used some freshly caught stripped bass! The flavors are so wonderful, browned butter and a bit of lemon! Absolutely sublime! Try this, you'll be hooked!
