Sole meunière the meal that launched an adventure

Today would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday. This simple fish dish was the first meal that was introduced to Julia as she and her husband, Paul, were on their way to Paris. With this one dish she started on an adventure  that the rest of us glad she took. So this dish is for you. 

Lemon, parsley and butter, missing the capers

Icelandic fresh caught cod

Sole meunière

The recipe I found in Julia and Jacques Cooking at home. In her book Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom she wrote about this dish and using clarified the butter so I used clarified butter. Dover Sole is hard to find here, as any sole, so I used Icelandic fresh caught cod. Well, at least it’s a white fish. And in the end it was delicious even if I did forget the capers. All in all I hope I did her proud.
