This dover sole recipe with a pecan crust is deliciously light while being packed with good nutrition, and it pairs great with just about any side you care to put it with!
Holy hairballs!!! I did it!!! I FINALLY made a great piece of fish!!! Can you believe it only took me 3 1/2 years to do it?? But I did it! Can you tell I’m doing the Snoopy Dance?
This delicious, gluten free recipe is very soft, has simple and delicate yet delicious flavor thanks to the lime and pecans, and is perfect served with a side of just about any veggie you like. Cauliflower would be an excellent choice here.
And the best part is, Mini Chef loved it! In fact, he had no idea he was eating fish. I let him eat the whole thing before I started to refer to dinner as “fish”. Normally, he won’t touch the stuff.
Of course, it’s debatable as to whether he doesn’t like fish because it’s fish, or because I cooked it. (As I’ve said before, fish is not my strong suit). But any way you cook it, he loved this and he ate 2 pieces to prove it. I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
