| Updated Feb 7, 2020

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 – 2 lb              filet of sole

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. 
  3.  When oil is hot, add a single layer of fish and pan fry both sides until coooked through @ 145 degrees F.       Note: The filets are thin, cooking time is approximately 2 1/2 minutes each side.  When the fish is cooked through, rest the filets on a few layers of paper towels to drain the fat.
  4.  Wipe the saucepan clean, add butter and lemon juice to taste.  Simmer the sauce for a few minutes over medium heat.
  5.  Plate the filet of sole for serving and drizzle with the lemon butter sauce.
