    • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
    • 125ml dry white wine

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan with a lid over medium heat. Stir in the leeks and garlic, cook and stir 3 minutes until the leeks begin to soften. Pour in the white wine and bring to a simmer, then add the tomatoes, chicken stock, thyme and dill. Simmer, uncovered, until the liquid reduces to half.
    2. Lay the sole fillets on top of the sauce and cover the frying pan. Cook until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Ladle the sauce over the sole to serve.

    Totally Awesome! My husband said."It's so Gourmet." I used Talapia instead of Sole.  -  24 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is definitely a keeper! I think it is incredibly easy, fast, and inexpensive considering I'm just a college student. Definitely purchase some sole when it's in season (as I did). I had to adjust the amount of ingredients used because sole can be an extremely thin fish, so I purchased more than the 2 fillets which the recipe calls for. I used a white wine that I knew was delicious and actually left out the thyme because I didn't want to spend money on two herbs. GREAT recipe.  -  20 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
