Whole sauteed dover sole

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Whole Dover sole; gutted and scaled
\N \N (about 12 ounces after gutting)
2 tablespoons Milk
\N \N Salt; to taste
\N \N Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
\N \N Flour; for dredging
9 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Chopped parsley
\N \N Lemon wedges
\N \N Parsley sprigs

Cut off dorsal and anal fins. Make a slit in the skin at the tail end of the dark skin side of the fish, and, using a towel for a better grip, pull the skin off. Sprinkle fish with about two tablespoons of milk on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Dredge in a pan of flour, shake off excess. Let the fish dry on a rack for 10 minutes. Clarify 8 tablespoons butter. Pour this clarified butter into a saute pan over medium to high heat. Add the fish, white skin side up. Check after 1 minute to make sure it is not sticking and cook three minutes on this side. Turn the fish over and cook the fish 3 more minutes. Then remove the fish to a serving plate, and wipe out the pan. Add 1 tablespoon butter to pan and melt it. Pour foamy melted butter over fish. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and garnish the plate with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs. This recipe yields 2 servings.
