You can Broil, bake or pan-fry grey sole with tasty results. This light, tender sole variety does not need excessive added flavorings; just a little bit of olive oil and a light sprinkling of spices will highlight the slightly sweet fish. According to "Prevention Magazine's Nutrition Advisor," sole is an excellent source of vitamin B-12 and protein. Sole is also a good source of magnesium, niacin, vitamin B-6, and omega-3 fatty acids. A 3-ounce serving of sole contains 99 calories and just 1.3 grams of fat.

Broiled

Step 1

Preheat the oven broiler.

Step 2

Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil over 4 grey sole filets, around 4 ounces each. Rub the olive oil all over the fish filets.

Step 3

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon dried parsley over the fish. Place the fish on the broiler pan rack, around 4 inches from the heat source.

Step 4

Broil the fish for 5 minutes, then turn it over. Broil for 5 more minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve immediately.
