GP recipe Lemon sole for a light autumnal lunch

With autumn one thinks of root vegetables and more robust flavours, even with a delicate fish. This very simple yet seasonal preparation would make a great dish for a light lunch served with some salad.

Lemon sole with root vegetable 'confetti' and parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degsC.
  2. Place a film of olive oil inside a large ovenproof tray, lay the lemon sole fillets in the tray, and turn so that both sides have a very light coating of oil.
  3. Deep fry the parley sprigs in oil at 170 degsC for five seconds, lay on kitchen towel to drain.
  4. Place the lemon sole to the hot oven for four minutes and fry all the vegetables in olive oil until just cooked, for three or four minutes.
  5. To serve, place two sole fillets on each plate and scatter the vegetable 'confetti' over them. Garnish with the deep fried parsley.
