MAKING
1. In a microwave-safe glass casserole, microwave the butter at HIGH for 1 minute or until melted.

4. Season the sole with salt and pepper and fold the fillets, skinned sides in, into thirds.
5. Arrange the fillets in the casserole and microwave them, covered with lid, at high power for 3 minutes, or until they just flake.
6. While the fish is cooking, boil the leek mixture until almost all the liquid is evaporated.
7. Transfer the fish with a slotted spatula to heated plates and keep it warm, covered with foil.
8. Add the fish liquid remaining in the casserole to the leek mixture and boil the mixture until the liquid is reduced by half.
9. Add the cream and boil the mixture, stirring, until the sauce is thickened slightly.
10. Season the sauce with the lemon juice and salt and pepper.

SERVING
11. Spoon sauce around the fish, and garnish each serving with the parsley. Serve and enjoy!
