Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Dover Sole with Chilli Lime Butter

This beauty of a fish was skinned, but left whole, but you could use fillets if you prefer. Cooked in 10 minutes, I served the Dover Sole with Hasselback potatoes. The chilli lime butter would also work well with Lemon Sole, Pollack or Monkfish.

Serves: 2

Prep: 2 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 12 minutes

Difficulty: easy



2 whole Dover Sole, trimmed and skinned
2 tsp flour
salt and pepper
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil

For the Lime Chilli Butter:-

4 tbsp butter
1 whole red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
Juice and zest of two limes

Dust the fish with the flour and season on both sides.

Heat a large pan (I used my non stick roaster) and add 1tbsp butter and oil.. Add the fish to the pan and sear for 2 minutes. Turn over and put the pan in the oven at 180 for 7 minutes. Alternatively, leave on the hob on a moderate heat and turn every two minutes.

Meanwhile, make the lime chilli butter by melting the butter in a pan, add the chilli and the lime juice and zest and bubble for a minute.

Pour the butter over the top of the fish and serve!
