An amazing seafood offering where delicate fillet of sole is topped with a velvety French sauce that has to be witnessed. Combine this with the fresh flavours of my garden vegetable recipe and perhasps a glass of champagne to make a complete gastronomique experience.

    Your duck sauce description lives up to its name… velvety… and the vinegar sauce is also a wonder. Thanks for both of these, and the sole recipe, too!
