It is always a compliment when I get requests from loyal readers of Momma Braga and today’s recipe post is inspired by one of them.
A recipe that I love doing and is also one of my favorite dishes is fillet of sole. Growing up in a Portuguese household, fish was consumed at least one to two times a week. One popular dish is the fillet of sole.
Now many prepare and cook it differently which makes recipe sharing a delight. You can always try something new on a tradition.
Here is my simple recipe on a classic Portuguese dish.
- Fillet soles
- Olive Oil
- All-Purpose Flour
- First clean the fillet soles in water (I usually grab a package of fillets at my local grocery store which are frozen. Once unfrozen, I wash them.)
- Once cleaned marinate them with a little salt and squeeze lemon over all the fish.
- While it sits in the juices, prep your work station.
- First spread all-purpose flour on a flat plate.
- Secondly, crack two eggs in a bowl (placing the shells in the compost). Scramble the eggs in the bowl.
- Thirdly, add olive oil to a frying pan. Place the pan on the stove top burner for frying. Start the heat on low to get the olive oil warm.
- Then the frying fish process begins. First take a fillet and dip it into the egg bowl to cover the fish in egg. Once completed place it on the plate with the all-purpose flour. Cover the fish on both sides with the flour. Then place the fish in the frying pan. Let it fry one side and then flip it to the other side. I usually let it cook until it is golden crispy.
- Repeat the above step until all the fish is cooked.
That is it! A simple recipe that will have your guests raving. For side dishes you can do anything like salad, veggies, rice and potatoes. One of our favorite is the Portuguese Style Rice. Either way many sides would make this dish delish!
Would love to hear what you like as a side with fish.
Until next time…Happy Parenting!
