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. 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.
