Sole Fillet Rolls with Broccoli

Today’s recipe is refreshing and easy to make and there are plenty of alternatives available if you can’t find sole fillet. Turbot, halibut, plaice, flounder or any other flatfish can replace the sole fish fillets.

Sole Fillet Rolls with Broccoli

To keep the broccoli crunchy and green, place the broccoli florets in a wok or any other suitable cooking pot. Add a small amount of water and a pinch of salt. With the lid on, boil for 3-4 minutes until tender and then rinse directly under cold running water.

In this recipe we also use the whey from our homemade ricotta cheese to bake the sole fillets. Whey is the remaining liquid after the milk has curdled and strained and after the ricotta has been produced. Whey is a very good source of protein and cooking and marinating fish or chicken in whey tenderizes the protein due to its natural acidity content.
