RV Recipes: Filet of Sole with Lemon Butter Sauce

Filet of Sole is a tender non-fishy fish that cooks up quickly and is simple to prepare in a variety of ways, even in an RV. 

Here is a simple pan fry method that can be prepared on the RV stovetop or on an outdoors grill at the campsite

Serves 2 or more     

Note:  Refrigerate leftovers and use as an ingredient in soft tacos or lettuce wraps!

1/4 cup             flour

2 tbsp               olive oil

4 tbsp               unsweetened butter

1 – 2                   lemons juiced

                           salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place filets on a cutting board, pat each piece dry, then lightly coat with flour, set aside.
  2.  Place oil in saute’ pan, turn the heat to med/high.
