Sole Meuniere

The World Cup is still taking place - not for England of course - so I am still making dishes from countries that are competing.

Sole Meuniere is a classic Belgian dish - it's also French I think, but I found a website declaring it was Belgian so that's good enough for my purposes. Either way, it's a lovely way to cook a piece of fish.

The word 'meuniere' comes from the French for miller's wife and it means the fish is cooked in the way the miller's wife would have done, which is lightly dusted with flour and pan fried in a little butter.

The only sole I could find was already coated in flour so I didn't need to do much. I sprayed a pan with Fry Light and cooked the fish on both sides for just a couple of minutes then added a knob of butter, a squeeze of lemon juice and a spoonful of capers from a jar.

Serce with frites and enjoy!

I'm sending this to Chris at Cooking Around the World for his World Cup challenge.
