For the sole

  • 2 Whole skinned and boned lemon sole cut into strips
  • 2tbsp Fresh dill leaves picked
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce

  • 100ml White wine
  • ½ Small shallot finely diced
  • 75ml Double cream
  • 100g Unsalted butter chilled and cubed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 handfuls Baby spinach


  • STEP 1

    For the sole, lay out the strips of fillet on a board and sprinkle over the dill and season well. Roll up and secure with a cocktail stick, then place into a lightly oiled perforated steam container. Steam at 85°C for 3 minutes, then remove and keep warm.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, for the sauce, place the white wine and shallots in a saucepan and reduce on a high heat until only a couple of tablespoons of white wine remains.

  • STEP 3

    Add the cream, bring to a boil again, and gradually add the cubed butter, whisking at all time. Check the seasoning and keep warm.

  • STEP 4

    Steam the spinach at 90°C for 1 minute.

  • STEP 5

    To serve, place some spinach on a plate and sit one of the paupiettes on top (remove the cocktail sticks before plating). Spoon some of the sauce over the top and around, and serve immediately.
