Varied reaction from us two. I was disappointed with the dish, I reduced the amount of stock as per some suggestions and still I felt the dish lacked flavour. The 'war office' found the dish more to her liking and enjoyed what she described as the ' My advice would be to make sure you have a good proprietary fish stock, start with 500 ml and reduce in a separate pan down to about 200ml before adding. I would also add a large dab of salted butter at the end.

We liked the combination of ingredients but would use less stock next time. In saying that a solid weekday meal. Easy to make.
Ok but lemon sole is nicer when grilled or pan fried in butter.
Nice and simple but the dish rests on the quality of the fish stock. If I make this again will only use 100-150 ml and not 300ml.
