Light, tasty and healthy - lemon sole with capers and mushy peas.
Lemon sole, native to Northern Europe , is a delicate type of flatfish. It's a favourite fish of mine and I often use it in my work as a chef.
You can use other types of sole or flounder fillets for this tasty and healthy dish.
I've chosen to serve the fish with non-starchy vegetables - tomatoes and green peas - which both contain low-GL carbohydrates and are thus kind to your waistline!
Tomatoes are healthier cooked and even more so with some added extra virgin olive oil.
Green peas are high in fibre, protein, vitamins, minerals and lutein. They are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients.
I always have peas in my freezer. When I don't feel like spending too much time cooking, I whip up a super-quick soup with a mix of green peas, ground ginger, black pepper, salt and either kale, spinach or broccoli.
It doesn't take that much longer to cook this lemon sole with capers and mushy peas to be honest. So it's winner in every sense to me.
Note: Fish like sole fillets needs very little cooking. To make sure that I don't over-cook the fish, I flash-fry the fillets two at a time and then place them on a baking tray covered with parchment (baking) paper. Once all the fish has been fried, I place the tray in a pre-heated oven for no more than 2 minutes.
For 4 people:
16-20 small ripe tomatoes
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
400g, 14oz, 2 1/2 cups, frozen peas
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 lemon sole fillets (or any other type of sole, or use flounder)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons capers
2 spring onions (scallions), chopped
juice of half a lemon
lemon slices to serve
Divide the mushy peas and tomatoes between four plates, add a sole fillet and top each fish with some of the caper mix. Serve with extra lemon slices.

To cheer myself up on a dark January morning, I make these oh-so-tasty banana pancakes for breakfast. I eat them with sliced avocado and grated fresh coconut.

It's that time of the year again and my favourite Xmas food is cured (gravad) salmon. This is a recipe for two different variations of cured salmon.
