Put your heart and sole into it; Derek Marshall, of Glasgow restaurant Gamba, rustles up a fish dish that makes a great Friday night treat.

Byline: Derek Marshall

LEMON SOLE PAN-FRIED IN LEMON BUTTER

SERVES 6

1 cup plain flour

2 medium-sized lemon sole fillets per person

1/2lb unsalted butter

6 tbsp olive oil Salt and ground white pepper

3 lemons Chopped fresh parsley

There are more recipes for sole than any other fish.

Lemon sole is delicious dusted with flour in a succulent lemony butter. You could serve this at a dinner party but it can't be beaten as a special tea on a Friday night.

This recipe can be reduced easily for eating on your own in front of the TV. Get the fishmonger to skin, bone and divide the fish into fillets.

Place the flour on a large plate or use a clean tray, sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Coat it in the flour then shake off the excess. Heat two tablespoons of the oil and 1/3 of the butter in a frying pan. Saut two of the fillets on both sides until golden brown, then place on a baking tray big enough for all the fish. Repeat using extra butter and oil as needed.

Once all the fish is browned, add the juice of one lemon to the browned butter in the pan, stir in the chopped parsley and pour over the fish. Transfer to a preheated oven 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for five minutes and serve with half a lemon on the side.

We serve this with a side dish of chunky chips but it would be just as nice with peas and new potatoes.

ANOTHER WAY TO DO IT

Another Way To Do It Instead of frying the fish, you can season it, baste with olive oil or melted butter and pop it under a preheated grill for 4 minutes each side. Serve with lemon on the side.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Tip of the Week I always recommend you buy fillets of fish like sole from a fishmonger or the wet fish counter in the supermarket. That way you can choose fish that are a similar size and check for freshness.
