"Special enough for company. Fixed for Valentine's dinner. I used Swai and/or Tilapia as well. Shrimp sauce makes the dish special and served with long grain and wild rice. Made mine GF and lactose free by substituting brown rice flour and rice milk and omitting parmesan."

"The store didn't have Sole, so used Pollock instead.......delicious ! Shrimp Sauce was the best part, served with Couscous to make sure we didn't leave anything on the plate. I made the sauce first, then let it hold while the fish baked and could add the shrimp at the last minute to prevent over-cooking. Will treat guests to this next time."

"This meal was delicious. I made it with Tilapia, and because I had raw shrimp, I grilled them with Cajun Seasoning. Therefore, I did not sprinkle with Cayenne seasoning, because it was already a tad spicy.

Delicious! I will definitely make again."

"The shrimps bring this OK dish up another level. I imagine if you used the shrimp and mushrooms to make a stuffing, it would add amazing flavor to the sole, then top with the sauce and bake."

"This was delicious and very easy. I used tilapia instead of sole, omitted the parmesan and added fresh lemon juice to the sauce for a lemony flavor."
