Delicately flavored sole cooked in white wine and cream makes a classic fish dish for two.
Ingredients
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Pepper To Taste
  Sole fillet 2
  Green onion 1 , sliced (Include Some Green Tops)
  Lemon 1⁄2 Medium, thinly sliced
  Dry white wine/Water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Mushrooms 1⁄4 Pound, sliced
  All purpose flour 2 Teaspoon
  Egg yolk 1 Large
  Whipping cream 2 Tablespoon
  Parsley sprigs 2 (To Garnish)
  Lemon wedges 2 (To Garnish)
Directions

Sprinkle sole lightly with salt and pepper. Fold fillets crosswise and place in a greased 8-inch-square baking pan. Top with onion and lemon slices; pour wine over all. Cover and bake in a 400 F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when prodded in thickest portion with a fork.

Remove from oven; discard lemon slices. Drain pan liquid into a measuring cup; add water, if necessary, to make 1/2 cup. Keep sole warm.

Melt butter in a small pan over medium-high heat; add mushrooms and cook until lightly browned. Stir in flour until bubbly. Gradually add cooking liquid from fish and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. In a bowl, combine egg yolk with cream and beat; stir in a little of the hot liquid from mushrooms. Add egg mixture to mushroom sauce in pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.

Lift sole onto a warm serving dish. Blend a little of the liquid that collected in fish pan into mushroom sauce to thin it slightly, if needed. Spoon sauce over fish. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges.

Yield: 2 servings

This looks great I am impresded at your cooking style. Next time try Potatoes Anna with this and you'll be in overload-but it is so good. The thinly sliced potatoes become crisp in the butter. Not healthy for sure-but terrific on ocassion.
