Sole Fillets With Artichoke Pasta


  1. 1/2 pound fettucine, pappardelle, or wide egg noodles
  2. 3 tablespoons butter
  3. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  4. Flour, for dredging
  5. 2 eggs
  6. Splash heavy cream or half-and-half
  7. 12 to 16 ounces sole fillets
  8. Freshly ground pepper
  9. 1/2 cup slivered almonds (a couple of generous handfuls)
  10. 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  11. 1 clove garlic, smashed and peeled
  12. One 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  13. 1/2 cup dry white wine
  14. Grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
  15. Flat-leaf parsley, chopped (a generous handful)
  16. Salt


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain.
  2. While the pasta is working, in a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter in 2 tablespoons EVOO, 2 turns of the pan. Place the flour on a plate. In a shallow dish, beat the eggs and cream. Season the fish with salt and pepper and dip in the flour and then the eggs. Add to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a pan and keep warm in a 250°F oven.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add the almonds and toast for 3 minutes. Add the nutmeg. Spoon the nuts over the fish. Add the garlic and the remaining 2 tablespoons EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, and 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet. Add the artichokes and cook for 4 minutes. Discard the garlic and add the wine; cook until reduced. Stir in 1/2 cup water, the lemon peel, lemon juice, and parsley.
  4. Place the sole on 2 plates and spoon some sauce on top. Toss the pasta with the sauce and artichokes; season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside the fish.

i used to be TERRIFIED of artichokes and once i started to have spinach/artichoke dip i realized that they aren't bad at all. i think that this sounds amazing and i'm really going to try to find something that is vegetarian friendly to pair them with. i always love that you share recipes that i would NEVER think of. i think that you NEED to create a cookbook of everything that's here.
