5 Star Recipe When 4 Stars Just Aren't Enough
  • Dover Sole with Capers and Bay Shrimp

    dover-sole-cappers-shrimp3Last Wednesday on Chef Ramsay’s The “F” Word, this recipe caught my eye. For one I love sole because it is delicate and goes well with many sauces. In this recipe, Chef Ramsay keeps it simple and spices it up a bit with some cayenne pepper.

    In addition to being simple, this recipe is fast to prepare, and you can do it on a week night.  Like I did last night at our friend’s house (Rick and Cindy Rich). They were kind enough to be my food taste testers. Sorta like being the emperor’s food taster, except I am more like a jester than an emperor.

    At any rate, I am sure you will enjoy this meal.


    Four filet of sole
    Olive oil
    Knob of Butter
    Salt and pepper
    Pinch or two of cayenne pepper
    Jar of capers (their small)
    ½ lb of bay shrimp


    Bring a large skillet up to temperature over a medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Salt and pepper the sole and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.

    While the sole is cooking, bring another pan up to temperature over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter. Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. Drop in the shrimp and the cappers and stir. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

    When the sole is cooked, plate up and spoon over the capper and shrimp sauce.
