  • 10 fillets of sole each weighing about 3oz
  • 9 oz sliced button mushrooms.
  • 2 oz shallots
  • 2 tsp chopped parsley
  • 3 1/3 floz dry white wine
  • 6 3/4 floz fish stock
  • 1 pint fish veloute
  • 3 1/3 floz cream
  • 2 egg yolks for sabayon
  • 2 1/2 oz butter


  • Butter and season a shallow tray, sprinkle with the finely chopped shallots and parsley and lay the prepared fillets in the tray in a single layer with the sliced button mushrooms.
  • Add the wine and stock to barely cover the fish, cover with a buttered piece of greaseproof paper and poach in the oven at 175°C for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the fillets and place in a serving dish, cover and keep warm.
  • Strain the cooking liquor into a shallow pan, adding the garnish to the fish. Add the veloute and cream and reduce to a coating consistency.
  • Add the sabayon and pass through a fine strainer.
  • Whisk in the butter a little at a time, away from the stove, and season with salt and cayenne.
  • Coat the fish evenly with the sauce and glaze under a very hot salamander grill.
