This has become a new family favorite. What I love about this recipe is that it is easy to make, healthy, and oh so flavorful. I just love how all these flavors come together. I am so happy I gave this recipe a try. Make sure you have fresh juicy oranges, that makes a difference. NOTES: I made this dish with tilapia fillets and substituted champagne vinegar.
Pacific Sole with Oranges & Pecans
Not so long ago, Dover sole meant an overcooked fillet swimming in butter, dotted with tasteless dried herbs and soaked in too much lemon juice. But sole deserves a comeback: it can become a satisfying, sophisticated, one-skillet dinner with very little effort. The recipe can easily be doubled.
15 Reviews for Pacific Sole with Oranges & Pecans
The oranges, shallots, dill, and fish combination was very strange. In my opinion, the flavor was too off-the-wall and the dill and shallots were overpowering. Would not recommend or make it again. I only ate a couple of bites before throwing it away.
Use tilapia in place of sole, since that's what was available. Otherwise, I think the orange I used was too small or not terribly juicy, because I had a hard getting a properly saucy sauce. Next time I will use a larger navel orange and see if that produces a better consistency.
Otherwise, I really liked the combination of citrus and vinegar. Unfortunately, I didn't have any dill, which I think would add an additional brightness. I liked this enough that I will try it again in the future and see if I can work out the kinks.
The dish was very attractive and not hard to make, I had all the ingredients and didn't need to shop for anything. I ate about half of one portion before scraping off the oranges and pecans. Don't know what to say, it just didn't taste good. Fish and lemon or lime is great, but oranges don't work.
I was looking for something quick and easy and this what it was. I'm not a huge cook, so appreciated the simplicity.
