Lemon Sole Veronique
Lemon Sole Veronique



  • 125g white grapes, halved
  • 9 fillets of lemon sole, skinned
  • 30g butter
  • Small bunch of tarragon
  • 300ml dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 200ml double cream
  • 100ml milk
  • Lemon juice
  • Half the fish fillets lengthways, season and roll up tightly with the skinned side on the inside. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and place the rolled fish in the pan with 2 tarragon sprigs. Pour in the wine and simmer for 4 mins to poach, then transfer the sole to a warm serving dish and cover with foil. Reduce the poaching liquid by ⅔ and set aside.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Melt the butter in a small pan and stir in the flour to make a paste. Cook for 2 mins, then gradually add the reduced poaching liquid, the milk and cream, whisking until you have a thick and glossy sauce. Season well with salt, pepper and lemon juice, then pour over the fish rolls, scatter with grapes and grill for 4 mins or until golden on top. Scatter with tarragon and serve.
