Recipe : Poisson meunière Fish with butter

A little fishy for your dishy

A French classic  -Poisson meunière, fish with butter.  Once again trying to increase our fish intake, so er lets cover it with butter!  Well if lashings of butter is good enough for James Martin, it’s good enough for us!  Lemon Sole was the fish used for this, however you could also use halibut, trout or some flounder or indeed some cod.  Whatever you use, this is a quick to make and easy to put together midweek meal.  A simple dish that shows off fish at its best.  An acidic dish so a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio would go well.
