Quick Breaded Sole at

Fish is very expensive these days but sole is still a reasonable price. We have it often and this is a simple, quick way to make it.

She Who Must Be Obeyed picked up 3 nice sole fillets and I set up four plates for a quick breading.

On the first plate I mixed flour and Cajun seasoning blend. Use any seasoning mix you like.

I tossed the fillets in the flour mixture and put them on the next plate. I rubbed both sides of the fillets with mayonnaise.

On the third place I mixed dry bread crumbs and more Cajun seasoning. I put the fillets in the bread crumbs and spread them over both sides and put the breaded fillets on the last plate.

I preheated an electric fry pan to 400 F. When it was up to temperature I added butter. When it was bubbling, I put the sole in the butter and cooked it for about 3 minutes until the breading was browned and flipped them. I cooked for a couple of minutes more to brown the other side.

The Verdict

This has a nice crispy crust and the Cajun seasoning gave it a bit of bite. It is a nice easy fish dish.
