There is nothing exciting about sole. It's cheap, easy to find, has a mild, unremarkable flavor, and that's about it. Which means it's the perfect candidate for jazzing up by stuffing with crab. Serve with asparagus and lemon.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly oil a baking dish.
  2. Combine crab, poblano pepper, panko bread crumbs, green onion, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.
  3. Stir mayonnaise, lemon zest, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl.
  4. Place sole fillets, flat-side up, on a work surface. Season fillets with salt. Divide crab mixture between fillets and roll filets up around filling. Place rolled sole in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Spread 1/2 the mayonnaise mixture over the sides and tops of each sole roll to coat. Place remaining 1/2 the mayonnaise mixture in a piping bag. Pipe mayonnaise mixture in a zigzag pattern over the top of each roll and sprinkle paprika over the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until browned on top and fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

This was really quick and easy to make and turned out delicious. I used canned cocktail shrimp because I didn't have crab meat and I always use cornflake crumbs in place of panko or breadcrumbs. I also added a wee bit of the sauce to the mixture to make it a bit creamy. Loved the results and will make this a regular. Looking forward to trying it with crab next time. Thanks Chef John!

It was wonderful, even though I Made a booboo. I added the Mayo and zest in the stuffing. So I did make the topping for the rolled filet of sole and sprinkled the top with a little nacho spice. If hearing the guests say mmm, mmm all through the meal was any indication was any indication, I'd say it was a hit!
