Grilled Sole (or Flounder) Serves 4
4 pieces heavy duty aluminum foil – 12″x 18″
4 (4 ounce) fillets, 1/2 ” thick
1 ½ cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 ¼ cup fresh snow peas
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 teaspoons lemon peel, finely shredded
1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1. Preheat grill to medium.
2. Prepare butter – mix all ingredients together, form into a log and refrigerate in plastic wrap. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.
3. Place 1 fillet in each piece of aluminum foil, tucking under thin edges of fillet to prevent it from drying out. Top each fillet with one fourth of the mushrooms, snow peas and chives. Fold aluminum foil into a tent over fillet, leaving room to expand.
4. Grill foil packets 4 to 6 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
5. Open foil packets carefully and transfer to plates. Top each fillet with one fourth of the butter mixture.
