You can replace the sole with the fish in fillets that you like the most so do not hesitate to prepare it. The pickles give it a different touch that together with the orange juice makes it a recipe of those that you will not forget.


  • 2 clean, skinless soles
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • some flour
  • 100 ml milk
  • 50 g olive oil
  • 15 g capers
  • 15 g pickles in vinegar
  • 30g butter
  • a handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • a bunch of fresh basil well chopped
  • the juice of an orange
  • salt
  • Pepper


Let's bake the sliced potatoes 1 cm thick. We put water and salt in a saucepan. Cook the potatoes (we can also steam them), until they are soft when pricked with the tip of a knife (about 6 minutes)

We put the milk in a deep bowl where we can immerse the soles, We put the flour in a large dish.

Season the sole. I like to quintarle the side spine with scissors before cooking them but you can leave them whole if you prefer We pass them for milk and then flour.

Put the oil in a large frying pan and fry the soles first on one side and then on the other. If they are large we will need about 4 minutes on each side (if they are small 2-3 minutes will suffice).

For the sauce, in a frying pan, put the butter together with the chopped pickles and capers. Let the butter melt and everything sauté well. Add the finely chopped herbs and orange juice. Bring to a boil and cover the sole with the sauce. Serve the fish with the potatoes and with the sauce on top.
