Dover Sole with Lemon Caper Sauce

Dover Sole with Lemon Caper Sauce
You have to try this Dover Sole recipe! The lemon caper sauce penetrates deep into fish and gives it an amazing flavor. My husband likes this recipe because there's no hint of fishiness. If you aren’t a fan of Dover sole, you can easily substitute your favorite white fish.


  • 3 dover sole fillets
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian style)
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons oil
  • dill (chopped, for garnish)
  • salt
  • pepper
Prep time:
3 minutes
Cook time:
7 minutes
Total time:
10 minutes
Yield: 3 servings | Prep time: 3 minutes | Cook time: 7 minutes | Total time: 10 minutes


1. Lightly sprinkle white fish with salt and pepper (don't season too much, because the capers are salty)
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the fish fillets on both sides with breadcrumbs.
3. Sauté for about 2 minutes, or until browned.

4. Carefully turn the fillets and sauté another 2 minutes, or until sole easily flakes with a fork.

5. Transfer fish to a plate.
6. Add butter to the same skillet and let it melt, scrab any pieces that are stick to the pan.
7. Turn off the heat, add lemon juice and capers. Stir.

8. Serve fish topped with the lemon caper sauce and sprinkled with chopped dill.
