Sole and Salmon Roulades

Rouler means 'to roll' in French, hence the name roulade. In this elegant dish for special occasions, fillets of sole are rolled around delicate slivers of smoked salmon. The peas in the roulade sauce add bright colour and a slightly sweet flavour. Serve with new potatoes and a selection of fresh vegetables. You will need a liquidiser for this recipe.
