Summer in Bodrum! and dinner parties are in full swing! My menu for summer is naturally different from that of winter?s. Fish dishes hold a major part in my summer dining table. This time I wanted to try a recipe with sole. Sole is widely found in the Mediterranean and is caught by the local fishermen. It is a group of flatfish decorated with dots. It has a slightly tapering nose and a curved mouth.
When I went into the kitchen I had a recipe in mind, but the finished product was totally different from what I had intended. Not being able to find sole fillets big enough to fry , I decided to stuff the fillets I bought. In fact, fried sole is very delicious and if you can find sole meaty enough to grill on skewers , that is highl yreccommendable too.As for the recipe at hand, believe me this has also come out to be delicious, just give it a try!
