Sometimes the simplest recipes are best, and in the case of Sole Meunière this is very true.
Sole Meunière is a classic French dish that is super easy and quick to prepare. Julia Child made this dish famous Worldwide, I’m certain you have heard of her before?
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.
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!

This recipe is simple and can be made in under 30 minutes no problem, all you will need is some flour, clarified butter, lemon, parsley and salt and pepper.

“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,
I can smell you making my favorite seafood dish!
Note: Switch out the traditional parsley for mint and you will be surprised at how great it pairs too.
