Microwave Lemon-Horseradish Sole


  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp prepared white horseradish
  • ¾ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 sole fillets
  • SIDS SALT & PEPPER to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together butter, parsley, lemon zest & juice, horseradish and mustard.
    Season both sides of fillets with
    SIDS SALT & PEPPER then lay, flat side up, on a clean work surface. Reserve 2 teaspoons butter mixture then dividing evenly, spread remaining butter mixture on top of fillets. Fold fillets in half crosswise, enclosing butter mixture.
    Place folded fillets in a 23 cm microwave-safe dish with a tight-fitting lid. Top with reserved butter mixture, dividing evenly. Cover; microwave on HIGH until fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    To serve, place fillets on plates and spoon juices from dish over fillets then garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.

    Notes: The butter mixture gives the mild-tasting sole added flavour. Spread it down the centre of each fillet, then put another spoonful on top of the folded fish.
