    When the butter is hot, add salt and pepper, then add 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Be careful as this will spit a lot at first.

    Arrange any vegetable accompaniment on the plates, place a sole fillet on top, sprinkle with chopped parsley and pour the butter sauce over.

Remarks:

Sole meunière is traditionally served with steamed potatoes, but rice or vegetables will go well with it, too.

If you do not have clarified butter, just use normal butter, but be careful not to let it burn.
