Chef John's Crab-Stuffed Sole

Rating: 5 stars 92
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.

Flounder Mediterranean

Flounder baked with fresh tomatoes, kalamata olives, capers, onion, and white wine. Serve with white rice and a green vegetable.

Seafood Sausage

Rating: 5 stars 19
Seafood sausage is a great, underrated way to take less than thrilling seafood, like some sleepy sole, and previously frozen salmon, and make something that seems far more special. The flavor is lovely, and the texture is similar to a boudin blanc, or white hot dog, if you prefer. You can brown and serve these right after they're done boiling, but I like to make them ahead of time.

Pan-Fried Dover Sole

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
I created this recipe by combining a tasty sole fish with a cracker crumb coating, adapted from the way that I used to pan-fry the fish I caught from the lake as a kid in Northern WI.

This was my Mom's favorite seafood recipe, she is now 88, I am 60 and this is my all time favorite seafood recipe also. I have had guests, who, when invited to dinner, specifically request this to be served.

Texas Smoked Flounder

Rating: 4 stars 4
Nothing tastes better on a summers day then smoked fish. This can be adapted for trout etc., but the flounder cooks quick. It might take a couple tries for the novice smoker to time it right, but the effort is worth it. These are great as a main course, or a snack during all day grilling sessions. We don't just fry fish down here, we smoke 'em! Besides, aren't you tired of flipping burgers like the rest of suburbia?

Italian Style Flounder

Rating: 4 stars 198
This is a very easy and delicious dish my mother used to make. I'm sure it can be used with other fish besides flounder. My mother also used to place American cheese on top before baking, which was very good. Enjoy!
