Lemon sole with Italian bean salad
Lemon sole with Italian bean salad
  • Serves: 4

Woman's Weekly recipe This lightly breaded fish, served with a colourful salad, is perfect for a posh healthy lunch or light dinner


  • 4 x 175g (6oz) lemon sole filletsSalt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 15g (½oz) butter
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Italian bread, to serve, optional

For the bean salad:

  • 400g can flageolet beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 8 baby plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 tbsp roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp good-quality olive oil
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges

You could steam the fish for a lower-fat option. Chop up larger tomatoes, if you don't have baby plums.


  1. To make the bean salad: put the beans in a bowl and mix in the onion, tomatoes and parsley. Add the oil and squeeze in the juice from 2 wedges of the lemon.
  2. Coat the fish on both sides in seasoned flour, shaking off the excess. Heat half the butter and half the oil in a large frying pan and cook the fish fillets, skin-side down, in 2 batches. Fry for 2 minutes, then turn them over and fry for a further minute or two.
  3. Put the fish on to 4 warm plates and spoon the bean salad over. Serve with a lemon wedge, sliced, and bread, if you like.

Top tip: You could steam the fish for a lower-fat option. Chop up larger tomatoes, if you don't have baby plums.Feature: Kate Moseley. Photos: Chris Alack. Props stylist: Sue Radcliffe.
