Method

  • Mix the butter, pepper, garlic and parsley and basil together well.
  • Roll into cling film so you have a sausage shape then chill really well.
  • Lay the sole on a board and with a sharp knife make an incision down the length of the spine.
  • Then slide the knife to one side of the spine and slice the fillet back right to the edge trying to keep in one piece.
  • Fold the fillet right back to the edge of the sole then repeat on the other side.
  • Using the tip of the knife cut through the bone as close to the head as possible, then again halfway down the spine and finely as close to the tail as possible.
  • Dust the sole both sides with flour, making sure the fillets are folded out still.
  • Dip in the egg then breadcrumbs and coat really well.
  • Heat a pan with 3-4cm of vegetable oil to 175C.
  • Carefully place the sole away from you into the oil.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the sole.
  • Turn over if needed gently and take great care.
  • Once cooked remove from the oil and drain well on kitchen towel.
  • After a couple of minutes, you can carefully remove the bones in 3 pieces inside the opened sole that you cut through….
  • Slice the chilled butter and arrange in where the bones were.
  • Leave to melt slightly and serve.
