Lemon Fennel Sole

On to more frivolous matters like a sole flavored with fennel.

That is sole as in fish, and not soul as in lesser frivolous.

Hell, heaven and food. What could be more compatible?

I soon may be looking into the 10 commandments of consumerism, so stay tuned.

Lemon Fennel Sole

1 pound sole fillets
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon fennel seed
lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
chopped oregano
salt to taste
lemon slices

Place on sole fillets on a sprayed baking sheet and sprinkle with lemon juice and small amount of salt.

Crush your fennel seeds in a spice grinder.

Put your bread crumbs in a food processor with crushed fennel, lemon zest and chopped oregano.

Melt the butter and pour into the processor tube as it is running.

Spread the bread crumbs evenly over the fish and then bake in a 450 degree oven until fish flakes with a fork and breading is golden.

Serve with lemon slice and more oregano if desired.

    Sounds very interesting! I tried fennel only once is risotto… I think I will try it with fish now 🙂
    Thank you for sharing.

    I shall, indeed, stay tuned. In the meantime I’m going to do some sole-searching…
