Corn Flake Crusted Sole

Corn Flake Crusted Sole


  • 4 fresh sole filets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 2 cups corn flakes, crushed
  • Oil, for frying
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 stick Heinen's unsalted butter, cut up
  • 2 Tbsp. chives, sliced
  • Fresh arugula leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Season the sole on both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the flour to a bowl and dredge each fillet, one at a time. Ensure the fish is completely coated, then shake off any excess.
  3. Transfer the flour-coated fish to a separate bowl with the whisked eggs and coat.
  4. Transfer the flour and egg-coated fish to a bowl of crushed corn flakes and press down to coat completely.
  5. Add the crusted fish to a large frying pan with oil over medium heat. Fry for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. You may need to cook the fish in batches.
  6. Drain the oil from the pan, give it a quick wipe and return it to the stove over medium heat.
  7. Add the lemon juice to the pan and stir in the unsalted butter until melted.
  8. Stir in the chives.
  9. Serve the fish over the arugula and top with the lemon-chive butter.
  10. Garnish with optional lemon wedges and chopped fresh chives.
