A Really Nice Treat

When you find yourself wandering the aisles of the grocery store and end up at the fish counter and the sweet man behind the counter tells you that the freshest sole has just arrived and it is a great price, what are you going to do???!!!
Of course buy it and then go home and grab Julia Child's recipe for Sole Meuniere:
4 sole filets (she says to do them whole but not me); s&p; 1/3c flour; 2T oil; 2T butter; 2T chopped parsley; 2-3T butter; 1T capers 1T lemon juice.
Season filets with s&p and flour, heat oil and butter in heavy flat saucepan. Dredge both sides of the filet with the flour and then saute both sides of fish in butter/oil combo. Should take approx 3-4mins on either side until crispy. When the fish are done remove and place on warm platter. I use the same pan to do the sauce...but you could use a clean one. To the pan add the second batch of 2-3T butter and let it darken to a hazelnut colour. When it does, take it off the heat and add lemon juice, capers and parsley. Pour over the fish.
Make some rice and any veg, and honestly, you are going to love the lemony flavour, it is a really nice treat.
