Asparagus with Sole

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 1 hour

Number of servings: 4


    • 1 lb asparagus
    • 1 lb sole fillets (4 pieces approximately the same size)
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp grated lemon or lime peel
    • non-stick cooking spray
    • 4 Tbsp lemon or lime juice, freshly squeezed
    • 1/8 tsp black pepper
    • 1 Tbsp chives, finely chopped
    • 1 tsp mustard


Cut asparagus into 3-inch lengths. Cook in 2-quart saucepan in lightly salted water for 5 minutes, drain. Set aside.

Season the skin side of the sole fillets with salt and lemon or lime peel. Place asparagus spears across one end of each fillet. Roll up fillets with asparagus spears inside, and secure with plain round toothpicks.

Place in a 2-quart oven-safe casserole dish liberally sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients and pour over fish. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Baste fish every 7 minutes.
