Sole (Flounder) MeunièreCuisinart Original Recipe
6 sole or (flounder) fillets, (about 2 pounds)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Zest of one lemon, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Cut each fillet in half on the diagonal (this will make the fillets easier to turn). Combine flour with salt and pepper in a flat bowl; lightly coat fillets, shaking off excess. Preheat Cuisinart™ Electric Skillet to 325°F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and combine with oil. Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons butter into 8 pieces and set aside to chill in refrigerator. Pour 1/2 the olive oil and melted butter mixture into Skillet and stir to coat surface. Add each fillet and cook for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Turn over carefully with a spatula and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the thickness. Remove fillets and keep warm. Add wine to Skillet and stir to reduce for I minute. Add lemon juice and the pieces of cold butter; stir gently as sauce thickens slightly. Add lemon zest and parsley. Serve over fillets.
