I am happy to report that Alex liked this fish, YEAH!!! I hate it when I really enjoy a meal, but no one else is the house does, because then I feel guilty if I make it again. I mentioned this fish the other day when I was talking about garlic and no vampires. Actually there will be Vampires tonight on CW. I love the show Vampire Diaries, luckily I ate this dish the other day and I won’t scare them off, LOL 🙂
This recipe is in an old Sunset Italian Cookbook that is literally falling apart. I have no idea why you dip the fillet in egg, but I am sure there must be a reason. Maybe it helps hold the fish together??? I did alter the recipe quite a bit, I added olive oil and cut down on the butter. It did not effect the flavor one bit, this Sole with Caramelized Garlic is delicious! Somewhere Paula Deen is crying over that statement, but it actually helps to keep the butter from burning. When I told the guys at the fish counter how many cloves of garlic this recipe had, their jaws dropped! I think I will take them a copy of the recipe, they need to try it. It is really simple to make and it is awesome! The garlic mellows when it cooks, so it is kind of sweet and not bitter at all. It is definitely worth trying.
So…..Stefan or Damon?
