Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 tsp. light olive oil w/dash toasted sesame oil
4 (6 oz) fillets fresh sole
1/4 tsp. sea salt -- freshly ground
1/4 tsp. black pepper -- freshly ground
2 cups fish stock (very clear)
8 small red-skin potatoes steamed
8 oz fresh green beans
1/8 tsp. powdered saffron
1 tsp. fresh dill weed -- chopped
1 tbsp. arrowroot mixed with 2 tbsp fish stock
1/2 tsp. lemon juice -- freshly squeezed


Preheat broiler. Brush a 9x13" baking sheet with the oil.

Lay the sole fillets on the sheet and sprinkle with half the salt and pepper. Brush the fillets with a little of the fish stock.

Pour a small amount of water into the bottom of a steamer pot and bring to a boil. Put the potatoes in the first rack; insert rack in the pot, cover, and steam for 10 minutes. Now add the beans to the second steamer rack and steam both for another 5 mintues, until done.

Pour the fish stock into a medium skillet, bring to a boil, and reduce by half to 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

While the stock is reducing, pop the fish under the broiler to cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the saffron, dill, and arrowroot mixture to the reduced stock; return to medium heat and stir until thickened. Stir in the lemon juice and the remaining salt and pepper for a golden "buttery" sauce!

To serve: Divide the fish and steamed vegetables among 4 dinner plates and coat liberally with the sauce. Serve very hot, please!
