Dover Sole Paupiette Vin Blan

sujithgangadharan's picture
Dover sole needs to be handled gently as it is quite tender when fresh and also once cooked. With a thin flesh the fillet can be shaped into a paupiette and also will hold stuffing in them. This dish that i would like to present here is served in different ways, but to bring out the uniqueness of this fish i chose this recipe.
