This baked sole with mint and ginger recipe is an easy, flavorful, moist way to bake sole and other delicate fish fillets. Serve with rice and a simple vegetable side - salad of sliced tomatoes, some chunks of stir-fried squash, a pile of pan-roasted asparagus - for a healthful, delicious dinner


  • 2 lb. petrale sole fillets or similar delicate white fish
  • 1 bunch mint
  • 1 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Rinse the fish and pat it dry. Arrange the fillets on a rimmed baking pan. The fillets can overlap as long as no area gets more than two fillets deep.

  2. Whirl mint, ginger, oil, salt, and pepper in a blender until a smooth paste - you may need to add a tablespoon or two of water to make this happens, but do so sparingly.

  3. Rub the mint-ginger paste evenly over the fish. Bake until the fish is opaque and it flakes easily in the center, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
