A beautiful, simple, French dinner that while looking rather complicated, is anything but. Sole meunière.

I will admit freely, I was first introduced to it upon watching Julie & Julia with Meryl Streep in one of the first scenes of the movie (see below). The sizzle, the sauce and the delicateness piqued my curiosity immediately.

I now regularly cook this dish, especially during the middle of the week. The subtle citrus and tender flavor satiate my palette each time. In fact, how to make this dish plus a side of haricots verts was the first episode of the first season of my new vodcast, The Simply Luxurious Kitchen – Sole Meunière & A Classic French Meal. The recipe and the video is shared in full at the end of this post. can be seen here.

  1. I serve this to my 2.5 year old and 11 month old! It’s a great alternative to fish sticks. I can prepare this more quickly than fish sticks, use less energy and the result is quality.
