Braised Sole with Tarragon & Chives

Delicious fish dish using sole that you can substitute with haddock, salmon, halibut or any other firm fresh fish.



  1. For the poaching liquid; in a medium heavy saucepan combine water, wine, onions, celery and lemon and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and keep warm.
  2. For the sole; in a large heavy frying pan melt the butter over medium heat and saute onions until translucent, about five minutes.
  3. Put fish in pan with onions. Pour poaching liquid around the fish along with tarragon and simmer gently for eight minutes or until fish is firm to the touch and white in the center.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, remove the fish to a heated platter.
  5. Add chives and a little of the poaching liquid on top of fish.
  6. Serve at once.
  7. Note: based on recipe from Anna and Michael Olson's Cook At Home cookbook.

I used Halibut and Dry Marsala Wine. I also had to flip the fish because it was such a large piece. This is a great recipe, perfect flavor and really moist.
