Sometimes the simplest recipes are best, and in the case of Sole Meunière this is very true.
However, in case you have not. Then let me tell you she was an amazing American cook.
Who happened to stumbled upon Le Cordon Bleu, an World renowned French cooking school. She was living aboard at the time with her husband who traveled often for work.
How do I know? Well I watched the movie of course, no less than a dozen times. Crazy how fast time flies and that blogging now is nothing what it was then.
Now it takes much more work, however I won’t get into all that.
is sole meuniere healthy
Yes, it is healthy. It does have a lot of butter in it. However, everything in moderation is okay. Now for my recipe, I have cut the butter in half. So it makes this dish much healthier than the original recipe calls for from Julia Child.
This recipe here is inspired by her recipe from her Cookbook “THE WAY TO COOK” and the movie that inspired many.
Personally, I don’t like to use as much butter as she calls for so this recipe calls for half. But trust me it’s more than enough, but if you insist on following her recipe to the tea.
Just double the butter for the original version. Either way you can’t go wrong with this simple yet flavorful dish that is sure to make you a french food lover. Bone appetite!
Well, if your going out to the Restaurant’s to find this. Then that is why! Have you ever heard of an inexpensive French Restaurant? Nope, neither have I.
Sole meunière is a FRENCH recipe, sole is the fish used that is then Meuniere by way of flour, lemon juice and parsley.

This recipe is simple and can be made in under 15 minutes. all you will need is some flour, clarified butter, lemon, parsley and salt and pepper. And a hot non stick skillet, for frying.
Oh yes of course the fish too!!
If you don’t have clarified butter on hand regular butter will do the trick. serve with some fresh lemon wedges and a side of your liking and your will have yourself a great meal.
“I suddenly discovered that cooking was a rich and layered and endlessly fascinating subject. The best way to describe it is to say that I fell in love with French food- the tastes, the processes, the history, the endless variations, the rigorous discipline, the creativity, the wonderful people, the equipment, the rituals.” ~ Julia Child,
Note: Switch out the traditional parsley for mint and you will be surprised at how great it pairs too.
