This recipe is NOT Italian. It was in fact created by French chef Auguste Escoffier and featured in his cook book, "Le Guide Culinaire". Filet of Sole Otero was named for a well known French courtesan of the early 20th century. While I certainly understand how to prepare the recipe, I am dismayed that there is no specific information for the preparation of the poaching liquids nor for the Mornay sauce. Also, anyone preparing this recipe should be aware that a good dry sherry is an extremely important ingredient for the success of Sole Otero.

Hi Bob, thank you for your valuable input. I have changed the cuisine tag to "French." The sole fillets can be poached in the butter and a few spoonfuls of fish stock or white wine. Here is a very easy recipe for Mornay sauce. It is nothing but a simple Bechamel sauce (white sauce) with cheese.
