This dish is so simple to prepare, you won't believe it. My family adores it. You can substitute flounder if you wish, but we prefer the delicate taste of sole.

"I had no fresh tomatoes so I used a can of stewed tomatoes with the juice. I used 1/4 of the butter and a squirt of lemon juice. I made the recipe for 4. It was enjoyed by all and looked pretty on the plate."

"I have a hard time finding receipes for fresh fish. My husband had been ice fishing and I decided to try this recipe using the pan fish he had gotten. It was excellent and very easy to make. Will recommend to any one to use with what ever fish they have on hand."
