Petrale Sole Fillets With Strawberry Black Pepper Sauce Print Email

Serve with wild rice or lightly dressed salad greens.

1 to 1 1/4 cup washed and hulled strawberries, thinly sliced (about 10)
3/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon water
4 whole (6 ounces each) skinless petrale sole fillets (may substitute lemon sole)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons canola oil

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the strawberries and wine. Cook for 5 minutes, until the strawberries have softened and the mixture is fragrant. Add the honey and 1 to 2 teaspoons of the pepper to taste, mixing well.

While the sauce cooks, whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, then add to the saucepan. Cook for 1 minute, stirring until the sauce has thickened slightly (enough to coat the back of a spoon), then reduce the heat to low and keep warm. (If desired, strain out some of the grains of pepper using layers of fine-mesh cheesecloth; return the sauce and fruit to the pan.)

Season the fish with the salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Lightly coat both sides of the fillets with flour, shaking to remove any excess.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the fillets for 3 minutes on one side to develop a light golden crust; the edges will be opaque. Then carefully turn over and cook for 5 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through. Divide the fillets among individual plates and drizzle the sauce around or on top. Serve immediately. - 4 servings Adapted from Bargetto Winery
