Sole Meuniere (I think that's the right spelling)


I used to love to watch the late Julia Child to laugh a bit at her corny jokes, and my late uncle's comment that she looked like a man dressed like a woman. (I believed my uncle, though dad made a point of saying the uncle was "pulling my leg.") I even once went out as Julia for Halloween. Fortunately, that was a long LONG time ago.

Then someone stuck this recipe on MSN and her description of it was so rapturous, even if an obvious pitch to buy some of Julia's books, that I had to try it.

It IS good.

INGREDIENTS

2 skinless and boneless sole, sunfish, swai, or other mild thin fish fillets (1/2 pound each).
8 tbsp of stick butter to clarify or 3 tbsp clarified butter
4 tbsp regular butter
Chopped Italian parsley
half a raw lemon
1/4 cup of white flour
salt and pepper to taste


PROCEDURE
Put the fish fillets on paper towels till ready to coat with flour

Clarify the butter (if you have to); Take an 8tbsp stick and nuke in microwave till it foams. Scoop off the foam with a spoon. That's the milk solids which burn when they get hot. Important because you want to fry the fish in butter.

Trust me, it's worth the trouble! Try to get all the foam. Or get some clarified butter from the store.

Coat the fish on both sides with flour; salt and pepper too, though you can add at the end if you like.

Heat a cast iron fry pan big enough to hold all the fish without crowding; when it's nice and hot, put the clarified butter in it.

Set your iPhone timer for two minutes and put the fillets in the hot butter. When it dings, promptly flip the fillets and do for another two minutes. Remove from pan and place on plate. The fillets should be lightly crispy outside tender inside.

Put 4 tbsp butter in the butter left in the pan and melt it down; squeeze lemon juice from half the lemon. (Much better than pre-prepared lemon juice in a bottle!)

Cut the parsley and sprinkle it over the fillets, then spoon some butter sauce on them; the parsley crackles and wilts under the heat.

Serve with lean sides, like plain potatoes or wild rice or salad.

And, some nice white wine.


THOUGHTS AND NOTES

This has a lot of butter in it, so it's very filling. Startlingly so. You can, I suppose, use olive oil to fry it in, and/or add some white wine to the sauce.

Here’s what’s left after I wolfed down most of it.

Great Great Grandma very VERY strongly approved -- so strongly that I had to evict her from my home office four times, before I finally caved and gave her a bit.

Looks like the correct spelling to me. I think you blew it in the adventure thread.
