Oh yum! Fish, lime, butter, and basil go so good together. Add a little kale, rice, tomatoes, and cucumbers, and you have a meal fit for a fancy restaurant! And it is so easy to make. Probably the hardest part is the butter, but that isn't really that hard.
This recipe makes 8 soles.
1/3 cup fresh basil.
1/2 cup slightly melted butter.
The zest of 2 limes.
1 lime squeezed. Mix it all together with a hand held blender, then set aside.
Place your sole onto tin foil. Salt and pepper.
Mince about 1/2 cup of chives.
Spread the chives over the sole.
Then take that other lime, the one you didn't squeeze, slice it up and place over your sole. Wrap your sole in the tin foil, then place on the barbeque (500°F) for 4 minutes.
While the fish is bbq-ing, take a deep dish frying pan (called a wok), and put about 2 tbsp. of oil, and a chunk of butter...
And 4 cloves of garlic minced.
Place your kale in the frying pan, and cook until the kale has shrunken by about half, and it a little limp.
Add tomatoes and cucumbers from the Farmer's Market (way better veggies there than there is at the store), and rice.
Put some of that basil butter over the fish, and enjoy!
This recipe is even kid proof. My siblings loved it, and that's saying something. :)
